1884 __ First long-distance telephone cable in the US
Comment : The first long-distance telephone cable in the US is installed between New York and Boston. “In 1884, at great expense, a test line was built and equipped, extending from Boston to New York, and the possibility of a perfect long-distance service was established. In the following year the American Telephone and Telegraph Company was organized, and built a twenty-five-line system into Philadelphia, then to Boston, Albany, Buffalo, the coal fields of Pennsylvania, Baltimore, and Washington, and a great web is constantly gathering up intermediate points.”.
