Except that it does not.  It provides somewhat similar protection (if you could
call it that), but, on very different terms.

The proposal as written allows an ISP to exclude the contact data for their
customers solely at the ISP's discretion and allows the ISP to obfuscate
ALL contact data, not merely the name and street address.

The proposal makes this ability to obfuscate the data from public view
solely at the discretion of the ISP and not their customer.

Claiming that it extends the same protections as the residential
customer privacy is disingenuous at best, and, potentially very
misleading to those less familiar with the terms of the two policies.
