Telephone World Telephone World is a hobby website devoted to the mysterious device known as the Telephone. People have used "the phone" for more than 125 years, yet very few of us know what goes on behind the scenes when we make or receive a phone call. This website should help enlighten you on this useful yet mysterious device that is in most every home and business in the industrialized world.
Welcome to the new Telephone World! We are making a brand new site from scratch. If you were a user at the old site, you'll see most of that site being recreated here, and new things added. LOTS of updates need to be made! So hold tight while the old site is being migrated over, page by page! Thanks!
More name changes and more confusion on the telecom front.
CenturyLink (formerly CenturyTel, Embarq, Sprint, United Telephone, Qwest, US West, and a number of Baby Bells) is now called Lumen technologies, effective Sept. 18, 2020.
They will continue to market their residential and small business services as CenturyLink, but enterprise business is now called Lumen.
