This article gives a global summary of the evolution of telecommunications around the world. It is a quick review of this vital industry from its
past to its future.The invention of the telephone allowed the immediate and simultaneous interconnection of many people around the world for the first time
in human history. This produced many major benefits, such as the unprecedented rates of economic growth experienced in the last century. Therefore,
the twentieth century could be called the “Age of the Telephone.” Finally, some implications of an increasingly interconnected world
are considered, such as even faster development and knowledge creation.New mobile forms of communication in the twenty-first century are substituting
the old fixed landline telephones of the twentieth century, bringing cheaper, faster, better, and more-efficient ways to communicate in our
rapidly connecting planetary civilization.
