Mountaintop digipeaters normally DON'T have Internet access.  (It's 
awfully difficult to get Internet service on remote mountain tops!).   
APRS Internet gateway stations ( "igates") are normally stations on the 
ground (typically  home stations that have always-on Internet access) 
listening to high-level digipeaters.
