  • Communications I: Telephone technology: The `which switch' game

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):41 - 42

    When the wires from a home telephone reach the local switching exchange, they enter a system that is unfamiliar to most telephone users - even to those who are engineers. Modern direct dial telephone systems are enormous. In fact, they are the most complex interconnected, automatic systems man has devised. As users we are generally aware of the telephone system only when it frustrates or fails us.... View full abstract»

    Only about 51 percent of all British households now have telephones, and the demand for new installations is very strong. At present there are 12.6 million telephone lines in use in Britain. That number is expected to grow steadily to about 20 million by 1982. The new lines will go overwhelmingly into homes and household penetration should reach 85 percent by 1985. View full abstract»
