Are dynamic IP's "shared"?

    I have a Verizon Wireless JetPack (US). Every time I cycle it on/off it gives me a new IP. Verizon has a HUGE IP pool and it is dynamic with 4g speed (its awesome!). Here is the question: Am I basically "sharing" these IP's with other people locally around me? I have cycled through thousands of IP's, so it is hard to believe that these would be fresh (virgin) every time. Any insight would be appreciated.

    They are shared but not in the same time, so you might get a previously spammed ip at any time.

    Yes, they just come from a pool, as soon as you cycle, you pick up a free ip from the pool, and your old ip will become available to others after its expired - think that can be configured between 24hours to 8 days.

    This. One time I clicked on a website I frequently visit and a message popped up saying that my IP was banned for previous abuse :) Delete cookies, reset router -> problem solved.

    Thank you for the replies. So, since these are "shared" but not at the same time can the ISP track to know who used what IP at what time? Say if a site complained about a lot of traffic coming from it.

    They will keep logs, yes.

    Unless you're doing something that's very illegal though, I probably wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Yes, the time-stamp (access log on the server) will link to your NIC mac address, the ISP will always know who, what, and when. If fishy stuff undergo, it would be a little better using a vpn (those firms also must keep server logs for six months), or the tor browser, or even maybe connecting from a remote public wi-fi location if really serious stuff.
