USA calling plans
The United States of America has one of the largest and most technologically advanced telephone systems in the world featuring high-tech telecoms equipment and multipurpose communications. The industry is also fully automated.
The domestic telecoms industry has a large fibre optic cable system, domestic satellites, and microwave radio relay amongst a number of telecom equipment systems capable of carrying all forms of telecommunication traffic throughout the USA. America’s international telephone system is composed of 24 ocean cable systems, 61 satellite earth stations as well as 5 intersputnik and 4 Inmarsat systems in the Pacific & Atlantic Ocean regions.
According to the latest estimates, the number of active telephone main lines stands at 141 million and at 286 million for active mobile cellular lines. The number of main lines has stopped growing and begun to decline in most markets, giving way to the growth of the mobile cellular line, which shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Initially, the US telephone system was run by an AT&T monopoly. This however changed in 1984 when AT&T was split up. Since then, the telecoms industry has been open to competition.
