The article evaluates the public use of telephone booths in the U.S. Because of the popularity of cellular telephones, public telephone booths have diminished attractiveness to telecommunication consumers. However, the development of the Cell Zone telephone booth product sees major advantages. Cell Zone founders the Salemi family and Anthony Ferranti developed an idea to design booths with sound- resistant technology and customized decors. The price of booths ranged from $2,400 to $3,500.
