What is telephone cable?
Phone cable is a type of wire which is connected to homes and buildings, operating as a telephone communication system. Used all over the world, each lead is carefully designed to enable communication in a crystal-clear manner. They are available in a variety of lengths and number of pairs and guarantee reliability whether it's to make a call or have a correctly running network.

How does telephone cable work?
Telephone lines work in similar ways to what electronic wires or cables do. A circuit is made and providing the circuit is connected at either end, it will provide an outlet for communication or network at both ends. If the cable is used for a telephone, speech is made through the phone handset which runs down the carefully constructed cable and the signal will arrive at the destination handset.
