  • 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.

I always enjoy reading your news and commentary. It always came right to the point. I know this will not be the last time I will be hearing from you, but I do wish you success in finding work that is appealing and non-apologetic!

Dear Steve, Thank you for all of your superb coverage. Concise, focused, knowledgeable, it helped me to grasp this little-known but essential piece of the new media puzzle. It will be missed.

I hope that you will find a better -- or at least better-paid -- situation soon.

Yours very truly,

A U S T I N ,

Sorry to hear you are moving on, I would try to check in here every few weeks to learn something new. You had even made it onto my browser's bookmark toolbar.

Good luck with future endeavors!
