  • 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 page.

Matt's dedication to "doing it right the first time" shows with his loyal and ever increasing customer base, even despite numerous competitors. As a former employee of Matt Larsen, I am proud and to hear of this achievement, and proud to say that I had the pleasure of working for this Nebraska pioneer!

When I started with Matt's company, we had a 200 dial up customers. Within two years, we surpassed 2000. And, working with our local phone company, we offered ISDN dialup before anyone else, and obtained the first DSL circuit in the state of Nebraska used for Internet. It is no surprise he has now conquered the world of wireless.

Congratulations, Matt!

It is always heart warming to read inspirational stories of small, rural companies succeeding in a big way. It sounds as if it is well deserved in that Mr. Larsen did his homework, started from the ground up and got seriously involved in the industry.
