Agreed, cellular data is really the best solution available today and
probably always will be for the mobile user.

I'm reading and sending mail at the office via RDC and a Sprint Data card
right now.  Sitting in the passenger seat traveling at 70Mph+ and haven't
missed a ping yet in over two hours.  I've been inside buildings, on
rooftops, in vehicle and out of vehicle.  Just can't beat having it and it
is only getting better.

Honestly, for someone who's gonna be THAT mobile, I'd recommend a cell
phone PCMCIA card. Yes, I work for a WISP, but I know what problems I
can (and cannot) solve, and at least for my network, that sort of
roaming is firmly in the "cannot" category.

Obviously, WISP wifi roaming is possible; there was a thread about it a
couple weeks ago, where someone did a lot of voodoo with Mikrotik. But
unless your whole network already happens to support that, or the
customer is rather patient, just recommending a cell card is probably
gonna make everyone happier. (The customer gets the service they're
looking for, and you've saved many man-hours rebuilding your network :)
