  • About Steve Stroh

    In 1996, I was fascinated to discover that providing Internet Access via wireless technologies was not only possible, but being done routinely by a small band of pioneering Internet Service Providers. By mid-1997, I was writing professionally about Broadband Wireless Internet Access (BWIA), first as a monthly columnist in Boardwatch Magazine.

    In 2000, I began writing about BWIA full time in my own blogs, for numerous other publications, and FOCUS On Broadband Wireless Internet Access, my subscription newsletter.

    From 2008 - 2015, I took a hiatus from writing about BWIA, but my interest in BWIA did not wane. In 2016, I was able to resume writing full time, and I formed Zero Retries to publish a family of subscription newsletters about Broadband Internet Access using various wireless technologies, not just fixed link terrestrial systems.bio page.

Thanks Steve for an article that hits the issue right on the head.
Its so nice to hear someone talking sense from experience!

People who should know better a clueless about what it takes to deploy wireless broadband. They think they have valid "common sense" views of how wireless propagates, but all their real experience are:
Radio and TV with their one way, hndreds of Mhz spectrum and megawatt transmit power, huge guardbands and super simple recievers (Works great in my house, oh wait I have cable..)

Cellular Phone with low Ghz spectrum,4kbps bandwidths and pretty small cell sizes (Usually works ok in my house)

802.11 with pretty big channel bandwidth but very short range and almost purely line of sight. (It works great in my house)
