WELCOME TO THE TELECOM ARCHIVES
                 ===============================

Welcome to the Telecom Archives. All the back issues of TELECOM Digest
are on file here along with many other files of interest. To review
back issues of the Digest, change to the directory 'back.issues' then
either pull the 'telecom-recent' file or 'cd recent.single.issues'.

Most all of the back issues of TELECOM Digest are available, however
at the present time the index of authors and subjects only goes back
to the start of 1989 and it is in four parts for each in use:

        1989-->1991 *and* 1992-->1994 *and* 1995-->1997 *and* 1998-99

The Archives is broken down in to several sub-directories based on the
type of file. Categories include:

      areacodes
      carriers
      history
      technical
      reports
      modems
      many other categories

Pull the 'Index-telecom.archives' file for a mirror of all the directories
and their contents. This same mirror file is available to users of the
Archives Email Service by using the command INDEX or INFO index.

Please report malfunctioning, polluted or missing files to me.
