IIRC, ARIN staff referenced wires to the place where a person lives is
the bar to be met to be defined as a residential service.
This was escalated, and came down that this is the policy.
At the end of day, the data services supplied by Verizon Wireless,
AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA ... Are treated with a different set of
rules and definition of service (residential vs not residential) than
Comcast, TW Cable, FiOS, .... Is there a reason for this difference?
I have not yet seen it.
The point i am trying to make is that there is not a meaningful
difference from IP address policy or technology architectures. So, my
proposal tries to make that clear.
Why does it matter if i consume the service / use the IP address at my
home or in a park 5 kilometers away?
