I suspect that quite a few Coloradans keep their landline with Qwest because that landline carries their DSL service. Recently I found out that this is not necessary. I canceled my landline and still have DSL service from Qwest. Saved about $40 per month. Since I didn't want to lose my home phone number, I ported that number to one of the secondary phone lines at my company, where it forwards to my cell phone. I could have also ported it to a cell phone. They assigned a new phone number to my landline, then canceled the phone service, leaving only DSL service. It went very smoothly. People still call my old home phone number and they still reach me!
