I don't think the situation you describe fits within the proscription defined by the senator.

The ISP isn't passing on information about a customer--it's effectively passing on public information about a third party. "Hey, there's a lot of packets coming in from the same computer" doesn't say anything other than, well, there's a lot of packets, and they're all from the same place. Sure, that "from the same place" implies a specific originator, but the ISP needs to know that anyway in order to do their job.
