PhoneNet was an implementation of the AppleTalk networking physical layer created by '''Farallon Computing '''(now Netopia).

Instead of using expensive shielded twisted pair wiring as in Apple's LocalTalk implementation, PhoneNet uses standard four-conductor telephone ( Category 1) patch cords and modular connectors.

Like LocalTalk, the theoretical maximum speed for data transfer was 230 kbit/s, and it is generally used in a daisy chain topology.
