Fusion with voice

Bell Speaking into Telephone, 1876

I had a conversation today via Sonic.net Fusion Voice at my home. Very cool. Telephone is old news, but it’s still really exciting to be able to do it ourselves! It’s one big milestone in being a carrier.

I enjoyed this:

In 1877, construction of the first regular telephone line from Boston to Somerville, Massachusetts was completed.

By the end of 1880, there were 47,900 telephones in the United States.
