This value is intended for any passive or active equipment, cable or cabinet involved in twisted pairs copper connections only.

Subscribers can reach service equipments with xDSL broadband landlines or old telephone service.

Transmission networks with copper pairs links aren't much usual nowadays but you can use this value for this if you eventually find actual networks remaining.
