I have access to a network that gives me 40 Mbps whenever I want it pretty much nationwide, in my pocket all the time. And it supports APRS, here are my recent travels on findU reported through ATT's LTE and 4G network.

It is hard (and expensive) to compete with that.

But I'm sure I'm not the only one intrigued by your conversations, what cities have the 100kbps and 20 Mbps amateur networks? I want to know more...
