72.14.? some of that is google network space:
NET-72-14-192-0-1 - for instance

;; ANSWER SECTION:
www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com. 1568 IN CNAME  ghs.google.com.
ghs.google.com.         43199   IN      CNAME   ghs.l.google.com.
ghs.l.google.com.       299     IN      A       173.194.74.121

really: "Down for google or just me" would be a better name :(

what sort of source address are you using?
perhaps also ipv4 vs ipv6? (the lte devices will default, I believe, to v6)

Connecting to news.google.com|2607:f8b0:4003:c02::8b|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK

from some network in the interwebs... so v6 to this works (v4 works as
well, based on telnet responses)
