A $13K cell phone

first-cellphone-archives

In today’s dollars, BC Tel’s first cellphones cost nearly $13,000 — $6,000 at the time — and making a call was almost $2 per minute if the owner didn’t have a monthly plan.

Even with a $97 monthly plan, calls were $0.61 per minute… More at CBC.

I remember working for a mobile provider many years ago and we had a party to celebrate the first calls to be billed at just £0.50 per minute.
