On this Day in 1982
UK Inland Telegram service closes
The UK Inland Telegram service closed on the 30th of September 1982, after 122 years of service. By then the number of telegrams sent in the UK had declined to about 3 million a year, compared to over 100 million at it's peak. This was largely due to the growth in use of telephones, both in terms of coverage and wider ownership and access. It was replaced by the Telemessage service, which itself was discontinued by British Telecom in 2003.
