For what reason internet provider changes your IP address?
Why would someone want to change his IP address, expect that he just wants remove IP ban?
What are the specific cases or under what circumstances provider changes your IP address?

Hi,

Changing an IP address is particularly useful if you want to avoid online tracking. By changing it regularly, it will make be more difficult for websites to track your activity.

Here is how to change your IP address on Windows. Also, to better protect against tracking, it is advisable to use a VPN for additional privacy protection.

Your IP address may also change if your ISP changes its network infrastructure or if it has encountered a network failure. In addition, if the DHCP lease time has expired, your IP may also be changed.

The IP is changing because of the lease time set up in the Netgear router in the DHCP settings. IP adresses in a DCHP network are dynamic. The IP adress may change every time you connect and disconnect to the network. Changing IP can keep our data safe from hackers.

You guys are missing the most important reason why your ISP changes the IP address (besides that utilizing DHCP maintains a robust network), they can charge you am extra 30 bucks a month for a static ip address (so you can be your own host).
