It started in 1870 when Graham Bell and Elisha Gray invented devices that could electrically transmit voice over wires. Both of them rushed to the patent office and ultimately Graham Bell won. But least had one knows that, that was far from the last fight over the new technology called “Telephony”. The device was a major breakthrough in the field of communication which was till then limited to telegraphs. However like all great inventions telephony had to go through its low period and phases of evolution until it found able pioneers in AT&T to make if accepted and developed worldwide. Rest as they say is history.
