In such cases many providers use PPPoE to bring the traffic to the customer, so they don't need to waste IPs on small subnets. When using PPPoE to connect 250 customers to a /24 network, each customer needs only a single IP in that network (and the router on your side obviously needs one). A pppoe ...

Re: Private IP's to customers, but NAT each to their own Public IP?

I would not NAT at the subscriber module. Just make it a layer2 device by bridging wireless with ethernet. You can use tunnel or mpls/pseudowires to bring the layer2 to a few or one centralized point(s). in such setup you have less tiny dhcp/static pools and should that reduce the wast of addresses.
