Last year I quit Qwest for phone service entirely.
But I do use them for DSL with Xmission has my ISP.
I use Vonage with the 400 min/month for $17.99, including taxes
Qwest runs me $43/month (this month they finally dropped the Fed Phone
tax - so I was paying $47.xx), Xmission runs $19/mon
so my total is: $18 + $43 + $19 = $80/month
DSL tests (netpipe) out at 7Mbit down/950Kbit up running between my
linux box and the xmission linux box (which is a 600 Mhz PIII).
Local and long distance, and I am well below 400 mins/month
I live in Heber City, 4 blocks from the CO
