ESPhome: is it possible to replace wifi with gprs in SIM800L?

Hello, I will use esp32 with sim800l module. It works fine with sms, but I would like to use it with GPRS instead of wifi and send mqtt messages over internet to my mosquitto server. Is it possible to redirect mqtt messages to GPRS instead of wifi?

The SIM800L Component provides the ability to dial, send and receive SMS text messages.

It should be possible using own custom library as written here, but in needs more skilled developer than I am. Then one could use custom mqtt functions, that use GPRS, and esphome functions to control sensors, switches, automation etc…

Anything new about this?

It would be very nice to be able to connect via the API using a SIM800 module instead of sending SMS.
