Global - Industry - An Introduction to Telecommunications


Telecommunications started in the nineteenth century with the telegraph, and developed through the telephone and radio to TV to satellites and the Internet etc. The data transmitted has advanced from signals (Morse code) through voice to pictures and data and, with the development of convergence, to combinations of these. Every year, new technologies increase the services available and the speed of delivery. A combination of factors is resulting in the ever-decreasing cost of these services. This free report gives an overview of this development, and the role of regulators to control it.
