[World Building] 10 questions about…Communication

This week’s “10 questions about….” covers Communicattion. Speficially, the more long range communication, not the “talking to the neigbour” type of communication. AS before, this one is being kept genre-free as the questions here can be applied equally to fantasy as to say, Sci-Fi., but there would of course be differences between the answers.

  • What is considered short, medium or long-range communication?
  • What is the typical cost of sending a simple message?
  • How fast can a message be sent from one side of the world to another?
  • How secure is the system?
  • What cannot be sent via the system?
  • What are the limits of the system?
  • Is there only one group that deals the communication or are there many competing?
  • Where does the typical person go to send massages?
  • Are there any “premium” communication services?
  • How are those who take the messages viewed by the general public?

Bonus Question : Does every culture/country have the same system? If different what are the variations in each culture/country?
