The Teli Compact is a fine example of 20th century pulse phone technology. Teli was a subsidiary company of the Swedish telecommunications public utility (Televerket) responsible for telephone design and manufacturing prior to deregulation and liberalisation of the Swedish telecommunications industry. It ceased phone manufacture in 1988. The Teli Compact is Swedish style condensed into a compact, desktop, button phone. Unlike touch tone, pulse phones make lovely audible clicks. But careful using it for tele-banking, because automated touch-tone systems can't hear pulse phone clicks.
