Telefónica’s 100-year history testifies to the fact that technological innovation has been fundamental to its development and progress.

A constant and unstoppable technological innovation that has sometimes manifested itself as incremental evolution and at other times as radical changes that could even be described as revolutionary.

Telefónica has been able to anticipate technological changes and transform itself to adapt to them, taking advantage of opportunities and facing challenges. Anticipation and transformation are part of its identity.

It is not easy to describe the technological innovation that has taken place at Telefónica in its 100 years of existence, and the changes and transformations that have accompanied it. It is even more difficult to visualise with sufficient expressiveness its transcendence in each historical moment and its impact on society and people. But it is worth trying to make an account of the most outstanding technological innovation events, which does justice to this excellent story, because without the light of the past we would enter the tunnel of the future in the dark.
