Some guy told me that my future depends on having quality telephone service. I think not.
The telephone was invented in the 1800s, and was a fantastic piece of technology for 200 years. Since it’s invention we have also invented more advanced forms of communication. E-mail. Text-Messaging. Video-Conferencing. And with the advent of high-speed internet based on fiber and coaxial networks, none of these technologies rely on or even utilize the telephone.
The future in no way relies on the telephone. And anyone who believes the telephone to still be a relevant technology needs to step into the 21st century, where the rest of us are currently living.
