Landline

The public telephone network has evolved over the decades from manually switched wires carrying analog-encoded voice to an electrically switched, computer-controlled grid of wires, fiber optics, and radio carrying digitally encoded voice and other data.

Owning a landline telephone switch is nothing new. It’s just that not many people have the skills to do it anymore. And that’s why The Don can charge top dollar for his services, often with repeat customers. Phone phreaking (that is, hacks and exploration of telephone systems) never really died, it has just been overshadowed by high-speed Internet connections and wireless networks. But if you look closely, it’s still here.
