Quote from: twocvbloke on January 06, 2014, 02:04:29 PMAll telephone lines in the UK are touchtone, with pulse-dialling still being available on most lines (though it's all electronic, and often is very picky and phones have to be dead on 10pps or it's no-go!!), and yes, a push-button pulse-dialling phone is slower than touchtone to dial, but not that much slower than a rotary dial...
Quote from: poplar1 on January 06, 2014, 03:15:14 PMIf the pushbutton DP phone is 10 pps, then how is it slower than a rotary dial? In fact, it may be a bit faster because the interdigit time is fixed, whereas on a rotary dial, the interdigit time is longer before dialing a large number such as 9 or 0.
