(OECD, p7,8) Local loop unbundling – is a policy intervention intended to make the last. The local loop, which connects a telephone to a local exchange is a two-wire (2W) circuit that carries the signals in both transmission directions. Even asymmetrical digital subscriber lines (ADSLs) use this same 2W local To connect a 2W local loop to a 4W network a circuit called a 2W/ 4W hybrid is needed.
