Unless I'm mis-reading this, the "in the short term" is referring to the
fact that this cost will come *down* over time, as CGN becomes more
common/mainstream.  There's no reason that the per-user cost of CGN should
go up significantly over time, with the exception of the cost of the IP
address to allocate to it - but even that cost is diluted due to it being
shared over multiple users.

At no point does the article mention "moving up to $US70/CGNuser/year". You
are completely mis-representing that.
