history of telecommunications

Telecommunications, as we know it today, had its first point of change in the year 1800 when Alessandro Volta invented the electric cell or electric battery. The next great advance in this matter was the electromagnetic telegraph developed by Samuel Morse in 1835 and then the expansion of the telephone in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell obtained a patent for it in the United States. From there, the advance in telecommunications had an unbridled growth.
