The cost of wiring to your neighbor is similar to wireless, yet wired
will always perform better, is vastly more private and tap evident.
Use wireless for shots where you cant secure legit or guerrilla
wired rights. Performance matters when the airwaves are
full of noise and you're running layers of required overlay routing /
crypto net / fill traffic over it, not to mention your data.

If the network filestore overlay splits and spreads random blocks
across nodes, sneakernet will just add random avg replication,
afaik no networks or storage have that capability to plugin?
Of course if you trust the anonymity of your overlays,
anyone can host unsplit copies of anything they want.
Then, other than again needing a network with a plugin
capable datastore, if it's not encrypted unknown to you,
you'd have to trust getting it in person, which probably rightly
isn't going to happen unless you're already BOFs with MAD.
