Rotary Service Primary in World?
16 Mar 2006 08:11:19 -0800

I get the impression that almost all countries use Touch Tone service
on their telephones. For places that never had much landline service
to begin with, people are heavy into cellular, which of course is
Touch Tone. (Apparently in an undeveloped place it's cheap to build a
new cellular network than landline since stringing wires
house-to-house and store-to-store are not required.)

Anyway, I was wondering if there were any places where legacy rotary
dial switchgear was still the primary method of handling calls. I
tend to doubt it since electronics are so much cheaper and easier to
maintain. Rotary equipment required skilled maintenance.

Public replies, please.
