Bad Impacts on humankind
Alexander brought together the world's first telephone, using parts from the shop of electrical equipment and the skill of his assistant Thomas Watson
In 1877, the U.S. had 2,600 phones. Three years later-48,000, in ten years - more than 150,000.
In 1892, Bell first rang from New York to Chicago, on the long-distance link.
The world's first telephone subscriber was Charlie Williams - an electrician from Boston. In April 1877 William established a telephone line between his shop and his house.
Alexander spent all his free time at school for deaf people, in two small rooms in the center of Boston. There it through sheer luck he found a way to convert sound waves into electrical energy, which is based on the principle of the phone.
