 From the article:

"Faced with the shortage of IPv4 addresses and the failure of IPv6 to 
take off, British ISP PlusNet is testing carrier-grade network address 
translation CG-NAT, where potentially all the ISP's customers could be 
sharing one IP address, through a gateway. The move is controversial as 
it could make some Internet services fail, but PlusNet says it is 
inevitable, and only a test at this stage."
