In telephony, a local loop refers to the connection between a telecommunication company's CO to the lines in the service subscriber's home or office. Originally, local loop service carried only telephone service to subscribers. But today, with the use of modems, ISDN and DSL signals are transmitted to subscribers as well through the local loop.

The local loop refers to a pair of wires, twisted for the entire length between the telephone company's end office and the user's telephone, thus forming a loop. This loop provides the user with access to the global telecommunications infrastructure that's installed all over the world. DSL uses whatever frequencies that'll transmit on this line for purposes of digital data transmission.
The local loop is the telephone line that runs from the local Telephone Company to the end user's premise. The local loop can be made up of fiber, copper or wireless media. Same as local exchange loop facility whose formal definition is "known as a basic level network access channel, local exchange loop facility means a transmission path capable of delivering analog voice grade signals or digital signals at less than 1.544 Mbps between the network interface at a customer's premises and the main distribution frame or any other point of interconnection to the LEC network."
The term local loop refers to the telephone line between a telephone subscriber's location and the telephone company's CO.[See Also: CO

A method of branching out or creating a stub on the network. The maximum distance this stub can be is 10ft. (3m) from the main network bus. Effectively the node is "daisy-chained" into the network. This involves two wires, one that goes to the node and another that returns to the main network bus. The total local loop distance must be added to the total network length. This becomes important when the main network bus nears the 4,600 ft. length and requires the use of Routers.

A generic term for the connection between the customer's premises (home, office, etc.) and the provider's serving central office. Historically, this has been a wire connection; however, wireless options are increasingly available for local loop capacity. Also colloquially referred to as "the last mile" (even though the actual distance can vary).
A pair of wires, moderately twisted for the entire length between the telephone company's end office and the user premises (the common telephone set) form a loop, so it is referred to as the local loop. This loop provides a user with access to the global telecommunications infrastructure that is installed all over the world. The local loop has been historically designed to provide voice grade audio service. The circuit is powered from the central office with 48V (open circuit voltage) limited in current to a value somewhat higher than 20mA. This current is used for signaling phone access, burning off moisture, breaking through metalic oxides caused by corrosion, and powering a carbon microphone. The original telephone equipment contained no active electronics. The actual wiring of the local loop may be considered to be a lossy transmission line. DSL uses whatever frequencies will propagate on this line for purposes of digital data transmission. T1 modulation (alternate mark inversion) has been doing this for years. DSL extends the capability by using modern technology to increase the data rates and distances spanned.

Synonym for loop.
In telephony, the local loop (also referred to as a subscriber line) is the physical link or circuit, that connects from the demarcation point of the customer premises to the edge of the carrier, or telecommunications service provider, network. At the edge of the carrier network in a traditional PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) scenario, the local loop terminates in a circuit switch housed in an ILEC (Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier) CO (Central Office). Traditionally, the local loop was wireline in nature from customer to central office, specifically in the form of an electrical circuit (i.e., loop) provisioned as a single twisted pair in support of voice communications.
