The rate of development of the internet and the digital age has been extreme. It is hard to believe that little more than 20 years ago, Google had only just been founded. Now it is one of the biggest companies in the world, influencing decisions and policies across the globe and seemingly ubiquitous in our daily lives.
The same applies to mobile telephony. It was hardly 20 years ago that the mobile phone was a luxury, the property of well-to-do business people but an item that was still out of reach of the average person in the street.
