Rob Grant's Telephone Pages

Telephone Pole Crossarm

We're Back! Originally created in 2002 this site was lost when PlusNet stopped their dial-up service. Now residing in a Raspberry Pi these pages are back in 2021 for your titification and pleasure!
During the 'lost years' I created a free Google site which is still online. This has content which is not yet here on this site. I shall be gradually adding new items here over the coming weeks. Meanwhile you can visit the Google site here.

This is a small site for telephone enthusiasts everywhere. It's privately owned and doesn't take itself too seriously.
What's here? Most of the content is a collection of WAV/MP3 files of telephone tones and associated sounds. You don't hear tones like these any more - well not on the UK network at least.
The majority of the tones are kept in my
Telephone Tone Menagerie
