The development of telex services in the Kingdom has kept pace with every innovation in telex technology. From the early days of electro-mechanical devices, through the installation of electronic machines in 1978 (1398/99 AH), to the introduction in the 1980s (1400s AH) of the most sophisticated equipment, capable of handling Arabic and Latin text simultaneously, the Ministry of Posts, Telegraphs and Telephones, as it was then, ensured that the Kingdom's ever-growing need for efficient telex communication services was met.
