Wired communication

Wired communication refers to the transmission of data over a wire-based communication technology. Examples include telephone networks, cable television or internet access, and fiber-optic communication. Also waveguide (electromagnetism), used for high-power applications, is considered as wired line.

Alternatively, communication technologies that don't rely on wires to transmit data are considered wireless.

The legal definition of most, if not all, wireless technologies today or "apparatus, and services (among other things, the receipt, forwarding, and delivery of communications) incidental to such transmission" are a wire communication as defined in the Communications act of 1934 in 47 U.S.C. §153 ¶(59). This makes everything online today and all wireless phones a use of wire communications[1] by law whether a physical connection to wire is visible or is not. The Communications act of 1934 created the Federal Communications Commission to replace the Federal Radio Commission. If there were no real wired communications today, there would be no online and there would be no mobile phones or nothing wireless except satellite communications.
