So there is still a russian provider operating NMT 450 mobile networks which is a pre-SIM/GSM-technology and enables free phoning a lot.

How many people are using those things, why are they using it (come on, Russia is not bumfuck nowhere in Africa) and are there any more obscure retro technologies out there?

I think they offer in some regions, but certainly not nationwide.
SkyLink offered CDMA, but now they are dead.

AFAIK you can just copy NMT450 chips and use them on infinite devices simultaneously.

Come on Ernst.
Microwaves are 300mm to 1mm LONG!
e.Coli, a popular bacteria is 1µm thick and 2µm long. They are not immune, but just dodge nearly all the microwave radiation.

Indonesia still uses 4:3 576i broadcast standard. This leads to some interesting situations where broadcasting for internet is often HD, while TV is still SD.

Yawn, NEETs who believe in conspiracies and justify their personal failure to be an adult is psyops in itself, well done fitting the bill nicely. Nobody needs to spend resources to sway you away from your current trajectory, you're an enemy onto yourself.

LOL @ Finland and Estonia thinking they are more advanced and the next silicon valley because they installed forest-wide cellphone coverage grids. Chile did the same thing, now you can get reception in the desert where no life can survive, doesn't mean they're 1st world. In fact they gave everyone free wifi but took away free water. Finland got free somalis.

>In Russia Uralwestcom shut down their NMT network on 1 September 2006 and Sibirtelecom on 10 January 2008. Skylink, subsidiary company of TELE2 Russia operates NMT-450 network as of 2016 in Arkhangelsk Oblast and Perm Krai.[3][4] These networks are used in sparsely populated areas with long distance. License for the provision of services is valid until 2021.

An ice fisherman in the arctic circle needs the newest antennas requiring a smartphone that he can't use in thick gloves and would get water damaged from icicles in minutes.

This is what progressives believe.

This is actually a good explanation to why this is still used.

On another note, pic related, an Ericsson t28z, a very slim phone released in 1998 and I think it was the first phone that had voice dialing already in 1998. Remember when apple bragged about it somewhere in the mid 00's ?

I remember my family owning a device that you could use to intercept NMT phone calls. It was kind of freaky as a kid listening to strangers phone calls, before police and emergency services moved to their secure network you could hear their calls also.

This phone really sucked. It constantly glitched, and sometimes it would even play the ringtone when nobody was calling.

t. had one
