Hiya all. I'm busy writing an essay and want to get in the date when the uk telephone network was established. I'm talking about the public switched telephone network. I just can't seem to find a date anywhere on the internet! Anyone have any ideas???

The first commercial telephone services were set-up in 1878 and 1879 on both sides of the Atlantic in the cities of New Haven and London.

1879

The Telephone Company Ltd (Bell's Patents) opened Britain's first public telephone exchange at 36 Coleman Street, London, in August. It served eight subscribers with a two-panel 'Williams' switchboard. By the end of the year a further two exchanges had been opened at 101 Leadenhall Street, EC2 and 3 Palace Chambers, Westminster, the number of subscribers totalling 200.
