Before Internet Fax Services
 

The first faxing patent was issued in the mid 1840s, but it wasn't until the 1970s that developed technologies allowed for faxing to become a mainstream form of communication. Using a scanner, phone, printer, and modem, the modern fax machine requires many costly resources, including a phone line, ink, paper, and maintenance. With advances made in every other arena of communication, however, traditional faxing has not escaped betterment. As of late, Internet fax services provide an improved alternative, offering many benefits over the dated ways held for over the past 30 years.
