On this day: #news from the archives

Plundering the archives of Total Telecom is a fascinating experience, seeing how issues have moved on (or not), how companies have thrived (or not), and how technologies have developed (or not). And as Total Telecom online has been providing news for the telecom industry since 1997, there's quite a lot to plunder...

So for no particular reason, other than interest, I looked at stories making the headlines on Total Telecom, on or around the 1st April one, five, ten and fifteen years ago.
