Wireless Telegraphy, though still in it’s infancy, held great promise for the future.
In May, 1903, one of these men, A. Frederick Collins, formed the Collins Marine Wireless Telephone Co, and soon after changed the name of the company to Collins Wireless Telephone Co. His first system was known as the “Inductive System” and featured coils of insulated wire four to five feet in diameter.
Unfortunately the money received was used by Collins and his partners to cover the expenses of marketing their stock and to promote further speculation, not for building the assets of the company for the benefit of the stockholders.

Although several scientists experimented with wireless signalling in the latter half of the nineteenth century, the principles of radio were not well understood before the theoretical work of the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell and the experimental work of the German physicist Heinrich Hertz.
Some experimentation was done during this period with voice transmission, then called wireless telephony, but it would be a couple of decades before it was developed into the form of radio broadcasting that we are familiar with today.
He now believed that a regular transatlantic wireless telegraph service was feasible, and that it would compete favourably with the transatlantic telegraph cables because wireless did not require the laying of thousands of miles of expensive undersea cable.
