Dear PPML,

Are mobile network subscribers considered residential customers?


2.13. Residential Customer

End-users who are individual persons and not organizations and who
receive service at a place of residence for personal use only are
considered residential customers.

I would say yes.  There is no meaningful distinction from a IP
resource utilization perspective,  a cable CMTS is nearly equivalent
to a mobile GGSN / PDSN, no?

Mobile subscribers are certainly not "ISPs", they do no
sub-delegate...  or even "Enterprise Networks" ... mobile subscribers
are 1 IP per subscription.

How should ARIN staff be interpreting this term "Residential Customer"
with regards to mobile network?  Are they or are they not "residential
