Americans lead the world
IN THEIR USE OF TELEPHONE SERVICE
• The average American makes nine times as many telephone
calls as the average European.
In the United States, you can get more and better service
for your money than anywhere else in the world. Under such
conditions, it is natural that Americans should use telephone
service more than do the people of other countries.
Your telephone dollar has been buying more and more each
year. It buys swifter, more accurate ana more dependable local
service; it buys out-of-town service amazingly faster, clearer
and more sure at substantially lower cost.
For more than half a century, the. Bell System has worked
constantly to improve and extend telephone service and to
keep down its cost to telephone users. -In this way,
it has helped to give the United States world leader
ship in telephone service.
