Spanish term or phrase: abonados comerciales de telefonía fija
En un contrato:

"Primera: XXX hará entrega a la empresa YYY una base de datos que contiene la información de los **abonados comerciales de telefonía fija** bajo los términos y condiciones siguientes que se establecen en las cláusulas subsiguientes. Dicha base de datos contendrá la siguiente información: nombre o razón social del suscriptor, teléfono fijo XXX y dirección."

Aquí:

XXX = empresa de servicios telefónicos
YYY = una empresa que publica las páginas amarillas (es decir, un directorio telefónico de comercios y empresas)

He encontrado: telefonía fija = fixed-line telephony / fixed-line phone services. Pareciera que el primero es el más común entre los dos, pero quizás exista una expresión más adecuada.

Por otro lado, abonado = subscriber, pero no me convence "commercial subscriber" para abonado comercial. Se trata de los clientes que son empresas o compañías (a diferencia de los abonados residenciales).

Hasta el momento tengo: "commercial subscribers of fixed-line telephony", pero la verdad es que hay pocas referencias en internet.

Muchas gracias por adelantado

landline/land line telephone service subscribers


Explanation:
Verycommon, I prefer "landline"

Definitions of "landline" on the Web:

* Non wireless telephone lines. These are the network of fiber optic and metallic or copper phone lines you see up on the poles crossing the road.
www.gpsanywhere.net/cellular_glossary.html

* land line: a telephone line that travels over terrestrial circuits; "a land line can be wire or fiber optics or microwave"
wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

* A landline or main line is a telephone line which travels through a physical, land-based medium. This is distinguished from a mobile cellular line, where the medium used is the airwaves. A land line is also usually used to increase the security of communications, as it can not be intercepted by a receiver without physical access to the line. This does not, however, mean that a telephone company will not send the call over the air on some point in the journey.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landline

Como señala María eresa, se me pasó lo de comerciales, obviamente el asunto clave es la traducción de "telefonía fija":
