I've used a Verizon Wireless EVDO cell phone as access to the internet for a
Telpac node with no issues

I'm doing some experimentation with a Sprint card on their
EVDO network.  $59.99 isn't inexpensive, but it may be an option.
We are heading to some repeater/digipeater locations later this
week to try it out.  I doubt it will work at really remote sites, but
we will see.

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.
