Sure - go ahead...type your telecom related search into Google, Bing or Yahoo!. After you get 18,381 results and don't see what you are looking for in the first 12 pages....
We think we have the most comprehensive telecom links page on the NET! This is the way the original internet search pages worked!!!
The following are hyperlinks to some of the best telecommunications information sources we know of. We have done our best to categorize them into classifications which make sense to us. And we do our best to keep the list updated. Of course, web sites come and go. Pages move. If you find an error or something missing, leave us a comment.
Hopefully you will find them useful in your web adventures.
