How the telephone changed our lives today?
Prior to the invention of the telephone, the only non-face-to-face ways for people to communicate with each other were by mail or telegraph. This meant that communicating with people who were located a great distance away was a very time-consuming process. With the invention of the telephone, people could communicate very quickly from great distances. This allowed business practices to speed up and businesses to reach a much wider range of customers. Individuals could communicate with distant family members much more easily as well.
