User Information API enhancement

A number of content providers want to intelligently decide which network’s traffic to send to Bango without needing to redirect the user through the standard Identifier service.

This new web service NetworkFromIP in the User Information API allows a content provider to pass a client IP address to Bango, we check it against our list of networks and returns the network it belongs to.

As some networks have MVNOs running on top of them, the physical IP address of the gateway is not enough to detect the network. In this case, we also output a “possibleMVNO” flag, letting the content provider know that this might be an MVNO, but they should redirect the user to our real-time Identifier service.
