Western Union F.A.Q.

In 1866, Sibley ordered the engineers to develop a Western Union telegraph system of stock quotes in real time. The project of congressmen involved the construction of lines with the length of two thousand miles in 10 years. Western Union handled the government task within 112 days. The secret of Sibley was simple: he used the tactics of the "Western Union". The first offices of company were located in the Reynolds Arcade building in Rochester, New York. The sign above the main entrance to the building - «Western Union Telegraph and Cable Office» (1932). Most service points of Western Union work in the time convenient for customers throughout the week and throughout the year. In the early 60s Western Union has put into operation transcontinental microwave system of data transmission via radio waves, completely replacing the web of telegraph poles and wires. Separation of the companies had two objectives: first, to give Western Union the opportunity to develop more intensively, and secondly, to help First Data to return to its original activity (in 1992 the company separated from the payment system of American Express as an independent financial services company).
