Yes, things vary around the world.  You failed to state "In the
USA".  There is plenty of case law in Australia about companies
attempting to arbitarially change terms and conditions to the
detriment of the consumer and being made to reverse the changes.

Changing from a public IP address to a private IP address is a big
change in the conditions of the contract.  People do select ISP's
on the basis of whether they will get a public IP address or a
private IP address.
