What is a landline?

Many younger consumers ask what a landline is nowadays as mobile phone usage has surpassed landline usage. A landline is a hardwired telephone used in homes and businesses that converts sound to signals and transmits them to the call recipient through physical wires made of copper or fiber optic. Once the signal reaches the recipient, the signal is converted back to sound and played through the speaker on the landline telephone.
