The period between about 1960 and 1980 was marked by major changes in the technology and organization of telecommunications in Canada and the rest of the industrialized world. The key to this change was the evolution of a versatile, multipurpose digital network. This historical assessment traces the scientific and technological basis for digital communication and examines its potential to deliver all kinds of information to our homes and places of work. It also outlines how Canadians are using the technology and explores its potential to shape our lives.
