Definition[edit]

"Telecommunication is communication at a distance by technological means" -- no, Telecommunication is communication at a distance, period -- whatever connotations may usually (and not necessarily) accompany it. Wyresider (talk) 23:58, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

analog landlines[edit]

@Kbrose: of all the uncited material in this article, the fact that most landlines are analog is probably the most widely known and uncontroversial fact in there. It is beyond me why that in particular has been singled out as needing a citation. More little blue number disease? SpinningSpark 21:06, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

@LiberatorG: pinging again. Wrong editor pinged first time. SpinningSpark 08:37, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@Spinningspark: I was simply restoring the citation needed tag that had gotten removed with no valid citation being added. The claim seems poorly worded, as any phone with a microphone has some part that is analog. I don't know of anyone that is still using purely analog equipment; those that still have landlines use a cordless phone that transmits over the air digitally. Since that isn't really important it would probably be better to just reword it to something like: "Historically, almost all residential telephone equipment was analog. Increasingly, ..." -LiberatorG (talk) 19:27, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@LiberatorG: Landline means the line in the land. That is, the local circuit joining the customer's premises to the local exchange. It's got nothing to do with the kind of handset connected to it, wireless or otherwise. Analog landline means the signal on the local circuit is analog. If the customer's equipment chooses to convert that to digital doesn't make a blind bit of difference to the landline – it's still analog. Your suggestion has missed the point entirely. SpinningSpark 20:21, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@Spinningspark: The article says "landline telephones"; if it is not intended to be a claim about the actual telephone device then perhaps the sentence needs nothing more than clarification. -LiberatorG (talk) 21:12, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
I understand, but I've now put in a source that directly verifies the claim. SpinningSpark 21:26, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
