- Another timeline with good general tech info.
- Yet another timeline.
- History of the Atlantic Cable & Undersea Communications from the first submarine cable of 1850 to the worldwide fiber optic network.
- This timeline (pdf) puts it into perspective with other inventions; who knew that the cell phone was invented around the same time as post-its.
