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.
