Re: How widespread is transporter technology?

I recall a DS9 episode where Sisko was talking about plucking up the courage to ask a girl out when he was a kid. He went on to say he asked another girl out "before her parents had even finished beaming the furniture in" when they moved next door...

Bear in mind this would have been 15-20 years prior to DS9. I guess it's possible the furniture company had it's own transporter similar to the way a company will deliver sofas today. It's also possible the family beamed their funiture from their old house to the new one, possibly using a public transporter system of some kind.

I'd imagine there are transporter hubs throughout populated areas which are government run and can be used by civilians for approved purposes.
