Just nosing around some carrier websites researching an article on mobile payments, when I noticed that Bahrain telco Batelco still offers telegram services.
I found this out while going through its list of contacts looking for a press spokesperson (which, incidentally, I failed to find so any intro's welcome), and right near the bottom is a customer helpline for telegrams.
I'm amazed the technology is still in use, but also delighted it's still around given the way the telegraph revolutionized global communications.
Does anyone know of other telcos that still offer telegram services? I'd be happy to write that article.
