Wireless Internet Service Providers

The following list was originally collected by Steve Stroh <steve@strohpub.com> and the readers/contributors of wireless-data@mailing-list.net which is edited by Steve. (Steve also writes a monthly column for BoardWatch magazine.)
I (Lars Poulsen) have added some specifics about the technology used, and I would like to receive more updates to that area especially.
Services integrated with the mobile telephone systems (CDPD, GPRS, G3 etc) are specifically excluded from this list.
