Did You Know
Yesterday, July 29th marked the 104th anniversary of the first transcontinental phone call? On that day in 1914, a test call was made successfully from San Fransisco to New York. The physical consruction of the lines was completed on July 27th, however, commercial service did not begin until January 25th of the following year because AT&T delayed the launch to coincide publicizing with San Francisco's 1915 World Fair.
Have a great week and keep networking!
