Back in the '80's recall that many small towns had but a single phone line strung on a line of tilting poles into town. Even in Puerto Vallarta the ubiquitous "Larga Distancia' kiosks were the only way to phone home. Old fashioned operator who manually connected the calls. First you heard the local gal while she connected to Mexico City... then a bunch of clicks, pops and the occasional beep... then finally you'd hear the phone on the other end ringing. If connected audio levels were usually low.
... how things have changed. Now my Canadian phone with it's Canadian phone number sits beside me and my kids can call me as if I live across the street in Canada.
