Chapter 3. Free Internet Phone Features that You're Paying for Now

Chapter 3. Free Internet Phone Features that You're Paying for Now

Telephones used to be simple. Dial. Talk. Hang up. Of course, a few decades ago our choices were simple but unpalatable. Pick up the phone you leased from AT&T. Dial (physically, with your fingers going in circles around the actual dial) a number. Talk through a decent local connection, but a poor long distance connection. Pay dollars per minute long distance prices. If you didn't like that situation, you could, ah, write letters, because there was only one phone company.


Note:

Movie Alert

Learn all about TPC (The Phone Company) in the marvelous 1967 paranoid comedy thriller starring James Coburn called The President's Analyst. Great movie.
