It's not a secret that they are trying to "do something" about 
Carrier-Grade NAT, which has always been a characteristic of most GSM 
data access, but is now infiltrating fixed broadband, largely because of 
the exhaustion of IPv4 addressing.

It's the 2015 equivalent of wanting to know which subscriber had which 
dynamic IP address (at a specific time/date) issued from a dial-up modem 
in the 90's.
