'Leased Line' Meaning Explained In Plain English

What do people mean by a leased line?

Unlike consumer broadband, leased lines offer symmetrical connections speeds, dedicated backhaul bandwidth and business-class support. This may often include 24x7 technical support, a Service Level Agreement, and expedited fault resolution.
