Excerpt from Radio Broadcast, Vol. 1: May, 1922, to October, 1922
The telephone subscriber invests perhaps fifty dollars a year for which he gets certain privileges; to get the return on his fifty dollars the company must keep their lines in condition - if they don't the subs... criber gets little for his money. But the company do'es keep up its lines because they expect the subscriber to invest another fifty dollars the next year and so on, so it is to their interest to maintain their service from the standpoint of sales. Also if the lines are not kept in such condition as to render the subscriber Satisfactory service, a public utility commission will order them to be SO kept. With the lines kept in useable condi tion the subscriber gets his money's worth; he can telephone when and where he likes. For this privilege the subscriber pays.
