Bryan, can you describe in general terms the amount of repeater airtime this 4G usage numbers corresponds to? Such as 1 hour a day, 5 hours a day, 18 hours a day, etc. 

This may be an option for our group other than doing a VPN. 

tnx

Just use a lower bit rate codec (GSM or g726 work just fine...it's only FM @3.5kc over a 5kc channel...not stereo FM broadcast), and you'll be fine.
