Mercury One-2-One Situations

Mercury Communications was formed in 1981 as a subsidiary of Cable & Wireless and for a while became the cutting edge of the rapidly-expanding telecoms sector, with their eye-catching payphone kiosks. Mercury One-2-One became the world’s first digital mobile phone network which would revolutionise communications through text messaging and smaller handsets. By 1997, however, the Mercury name had disappeared in an amalgamation of UK operators. Its legacy lived on through its successor Cable & Wireless Communications and in the Mercury Music Prize.
