From Bell to Jobs
The telephone was invented in 1876, and it quickly caught on in Sweden, which for a while was actually Europe’s biggest telephone user. The breakthrough laid the foundations for a special relationship with the industry that was later to be known as telecommunications, or telecoms, and that is today a huge global industry.
Telecommunication, from the Greek tele (far) and the Latin communicatio (mutual exchange), means communication over large distances. The speed of development in the field of telecoms is astounding, and many people assert that more has happened over the past decade than during the 130 or so years prior to that.
The faster and smoother our communication becomes, the quicker will be the next stage of its evolution.
