Any information feedback is good feedback, so if you find that there simply is no way to reflect more accurate information on a given platform then we may need to modify the specification to indicate that in some cases only "cellular" can be given rather than the more detailed alternatives.

That being said I'm a little bit surprised, if the device supports multiple mobile network types then presumably the information about which one is being used should be available somewhere (the question, of course, is finding where :). What are you using to talk to the radio layer?

I recall that Mozilla has expressed interest in this feature, maybe some helpful progress has been made about it there?

PS: I added the public-device-status list to the Cc because that is where Network Information is being discussed now. I encourage you to continue the discussion on that list rather than on the main DAP one.
