Default How the US government killed off mobile phones

We could have had the first 72 years ago

The world could have had mobile phones more than 40 years ago but the concept was killed off by the US government which considered them too niche and refused to give out any spectrum.

According to Reason.com the basic idea of the mobile phone was introduced to the public in 1945 in Saturday Evening Post.

J.K. Jett, the head of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that millions of citizens would soon be using "handie-talkies." Licenses would have to be issued, but that process "won't be difficult" and the revolutionary technology would be formulated within months.
