On April 13, 1882 the Los Angeles Telephone Company had 90 subscribers listed in it's directory. Twenty seven years later in Aug. 1909 The Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Co had 52,257 subscribers. This shows some of the growth in Southern California and the City of Los Angeles.

    How many phones in the city now?
  3. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 3 years ago
    Los Angeles City has approx. 1.75 million landline telephones, Los Angeles County has 7 million landlines. This has dropped over the years because of cel phones.
