History of Telecom

At K&B Communications we believe knowing the History behind telephones is important. So we can provide our customers with a telephone system that meets their business.


Timeline of #Telephone History:


  • Alexander Graham Bell pays for the telephone patent Feb 14th, 1876

  • Alexander makes the First Phone Call on March 10th, 1876

  • 1877 Bell Telephone Company Formed

  • 1899 American Bell is acquired from American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T)

  • (AT&T) is the sole Telecom Company nationwide from 1900-1982. With no competition and phone services were expensive.

  • Founder of MCI Communications provides competitive long-distance phone service as an alternative service

  • Judge Greene’s rules for other corporations to be able to join the telephone industry

  • AT&T is broken into seven operating companies such as:

  1. Pacific Telesis

  2. US West

  3. Southwestern Bell

  4. Bell South

  5. Nynex

  6. Ameritech

  • AT&T becomes the first long-distance company handling calls across the US

  • By the end of 1984, other companies could compete as long-distance carriers

  • Competitive long-distance phone services started such as Sprint, MCI and much more. Which were part of the Local Exchange Carriers.
