Oooooh... Okay I didn't know you could pay for this.  Obviously it makes
sense technically, it was that I just didn't assume anyone was
botheringto offer it as a service yet.  This is useful and interesting
to know.

Of course you still have to have something to turn that SIM in to an
RJ45 port for the net-KVM assuming those don't come with some fancy
usb/tether/ppp support or wifi (and use a mifi).
