BT Logo from 1991
Until 1991 BT was called British Telecom.
Until 1984 British Telecom had the exclusive right
to operate Telecom Services in the US.
All over Europe Telephone companies
were part of the national PTTs
(Post Telephone and Telegraph).

Between 1982 and 1984
the British government of Margaret Thatcher privatized
the formally state owned company British Telecom.
1981 British Telecom was created
with a law called the British Telecommunications act
transferring the responsability of Telecom service from the Post Office
to a new corporation.

1969 the General Post office replaced by The Post Office,
changing it from a Department of State to a statutory corporation.

1912 the General Post Office became the monoply supplier
of telephone services in the UK
for all cities exept Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire and Guernsey.
1878 the United Kingdom Telephone Service
started with private companies, mainly
the National Telephone Company (NTC)
and the The General Post Office (GPO).
1896 GPO took over NTC.

Alexander Bellcame to England to demonstrate
the telephone he had invented in 1876
to Queen Victoria.

1660 The General Post Office (GPO) was officially established
in England by King Charles II .
A Postmaster General was overseeing the company.

started in Paris
at the Hotel de Villeroy Bouron (
9 rue des Déchargeurs
the Royal Postal Services in France.
Letters between France and the UK
transited by VB.

Two hundered years later opened at the exact same
spot the
Cremerie de Paris
from where in 2000 was invented the Phonebook of the World.
In the 1990s one of the first Internet cafes,
Cremerie de Paris became a Hotpot for Brand Expos,
