What are the difference between telex and fax? Telex uses a dedicated telegraphic network.

Fax uses a phone network.

Therefore telex is more reliable in countries where the phone network is unreliable (ex: some remote areas in Africa, Central Asia etc...)

Moreover, telex sends a typed text (same as in a telegraph) whereas fax sends a copy of a text. Therefore telex is more accurate than fax.
