History of Electronic Communication

The history of electronic communication began in 1729 when Stephen Grey discovered that electricity could be transmitted over large distances using insulated metal wires. Since then the development of it has continued and become more rapid as time has gone on, helping shape the world as we see it today. From the first telegraph to the modern day fibre optic and satellite communications we have today, this website explains the development of electronic communication.
