VirtualPBX Phone History: Telephone Timeline
Alexander Graham Bell’s invention of the telephone in 1876 began the era of telecommunication and marked the start of the telephone timeline that continues to grow to this day. Innovators in the 20th century then expanded the telephone’s reach across the world and connecting its citizens. By the year 2000, more than a billion people all over the world had gone wireless using cellular technology to talk and deliver text and photos on lightweight telephones.
In less than two decades, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has revolutionized the telecommunications industry as well. Mobile phones have made headlines as they gradually evolved from expensive bricks to pocket-sized computers. Meanwhile, VoIP providers have helped to enhance international and business communication.
