This is must feature.
Why the tag is still UNDER REVIEW and not PLANNED, if this is on feature backlog now.
We have announced a partnership with Qualcomm to support cellular connectivity. The press release can be found at https://www.qualcomm.com/news/releases/2019/10/15/qualcomm-technologies-enhance-secure-cellular-connectivity-solutions

Any idea on when this could be implemented?

Research the network reach of the cellular providers in your home area. While most modern smartphones support tethering, internet. Mobile devices with Wi-Fi lose their connection with wireless access points when they are carried outside the range of the signal https://mybkexperience.me.
Definitely. OS should support PPP interface to OTS modules from telit, ublox and allow custom AT startup script before then managing connection via PPP on demand or on request.
Network connections should be switchable or prioritizable. Ie WiFi or cellular.
In today’s connected world, cellular support is essential.
Thank you for the feedback. This request is already on our feature backlog. We will provide updates as we make progress on this feature.
