It's time to explore Europe. 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". In October 2006 the company made an initial public offering of shares on the New York Stock Exchange, becoming independent from First Data company.
