FWIW, there  are some configuration options wherein you basically set up a proxy allstar server at some fixed location (which handles your node registration for you), and your wifi-hotspot connected node connects to that proxy using local authentication values. Issue being that you have no 'real' constant IP address when on a hotspot; using the proxy setup is about as reliable as you can get.

And, I've tested on AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile here in Bucks County; since you're not seen to the infrastrucure as accepting connection (using the proxy, the calling station sets up the connection), they don't block the connection from you to the proxy.

I've been running a hotspot connected node for 6 months, and, rebooting once every day, it's been as stable (on Doug's branch of the original allstar code) as I could ask. (and the data usage on a network of 10-14 repeaters in between NYC and PHL is less than 2GB a month on a 5GB service)

Just thiught I'd throw that out; can connect you with my proxy provider for more insight if you want.
