How to get my 4g to not be strict when connected to my Xbox one

When I connect my Xbox to my phone network (4g) it seems to be strict and this causes problems for some of the multiplayer games as you cant connect to other people because your strict. Is there anyway to change the strict connection to an open one?

You can't!. EE mobile network uses Carrier Grade Nat (CGNAT), which means that you don't get your own IP address but share it with other users. So you can't be uniquely id'ed on the Net.
