Incidentally, the first telephone box, called the “telephone kiosk”, was put into operation in Berlin in 1881; from 1899, there were payphones. The yellow of the post office – at that time responsible for telecommunications – graced the little house only starting from 1946 – incidentally both in the Federal Republic as well as in the GDR, as the Telekom announces.

If a cell is no longer profitable, it will be dismantled, as Telekom project manager Günter Nerlinger is quoted in the company blog: “We decide to take the phone booth off the grid, if the revenue per month permanently below 50 €, because the cost of course are much higher “.
