Short Take: DSL providers gain line sharing in Minnesota

Digital subscriber line (DSL) providers have agreed with US West in Minnesota to implement "line sharing" in January, allowing them to provide high-speed Internet access on the same copper wire that carries voice traffic. The agreement is expected to make Minnesota the first state to implement DSL line sharing. Following a recent federal ruling, line sharing, which is expected to lower costs for consumers, should take effect nationwide next year.
