I'm not currently providing this service, but I did so when the 
discussion came around and recall when this was extended. It was 
specifically regarding services. All the CPNI rules stremmed from 
a customer's existing providers having an unfair marketing advantage 
by looking at the customer's services and usage. It was rooted in 
the age of slamming and "pretexting".  Even expanding that to generic 
Internet service did not change the definition to remove the scope 
of services provided to a customer.

In that doc, see "Discussion" section F "Extension of CPNI 
Requirements to Providers of Interconnected VoIP Service". Even 
with ISPs under title 2, without inclusion of service information 
a public registry has [IME] no relationship to the CPNI issue. 
That said, my personal suggestion would be to not include type of 
service ( -DSL-, -FTTH-, etc) in the SWIP netblock name or 
elsewhere in the record purely from an infosec PoV. :-)

Cheers (this is not legal advice),
