FTC says: Okay for ISPs to block as long as they tell you they are doing it

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2019/04/ftc-confirms-isps-can-block-and-throttle-as-long-as-they-disclose-it/

To determine whether particular instances of throttling are deceptive, we would first evaluate what claims an ISP made to consumers about their services and how those claims are supported. We would look closely at any relevant research and evaluate the study’s design, scope, and results and consider how a study relates to a particular claim. To evaluate whether a practice was unfair, we would consider whether the alleged throttling had countervailing benefits and whether there were reasonable steps consumers could have taken to avoid it. We would also consider consumer injury, the number of consumers affected, and the need to prevent future misconduct.

Cord Cutters and the ISP

Dish Network (Stock: Dish) reported a net loss of 334,000 pay TV subscribers (compared to net additions of 39,000 one year ago), which factors out to 386,000 satellite subscribers lost and 52,000 new Sling TV subscribers. The company finished out the quarter with 12.32 million total pay TV subscribers, including 9.90 million Dish TV subscribers and 2.42 million Sling TV subscribers.

One of the key takeaways is Dish lost traditional satellite customers but picked up additional Sling TV customers. These are IPTV type customers.  If your network isn’t supporting video, it needs to.

Baicells: Public IPs on client routers

Public IPs on Baicells Client Routers.

I needed to Provide a few customers with Public IPs while most of the UEs and clients got private IP. The following is what I did to allow this to work:

Requirements:
EnodeB in Bridge mode
UE in NAT mode
MikroTik Router with DHCP handing out Private IP space to Baicells UEs.

Steps:

On MikroTik
Add new Public IP subnet to the same Bridge or interface as current DHCP server.
Edit current DHCP IP Pool and add a second list of IPs that are your Publics. Not a second pool. In DHCP Server window in the Networks tab add a new Network for the New Subnet
That is the MikroTik setup.

Connect the UE to the tower and find the device in the MikroTik DHCP Leases.
Make the UE leased IP Static. Then edit it.
Change the Lease address to one of the unused Public IP address in your pool. Apply.

In the UE: (only tried so far in Gen2)

Network > Lan settings > DHCP settings
Change Start IP and End IP address to the same (192.168.150.100) Save and Apply

Network > DMZ

Turn On DMZ
Set DMZ host to IP (192.168.150.100) Save and Apply

System > Web Settings

Make sure Redirect HTTPS is off. Save and Apply

Reboot UE.

When the UE is rebooted have customer reboot router.
From WAN side:
HTTPS://StaticIP Should bring up UE login
HTTP://StaticIP should go to the Customer Router Login or Port redirection.
