Sure - google your town name combined with the type(s) of service you are looking for - like this - Loveland land line and internet service providers

Generally - four main types of service like that:

1) conventional local telephone company land line, with DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) internet carried over the landline - generally the more things you "bundle" together the cheaper per item, like landline plus cellphone plus DSL internet plus TV typically cuts each service by about $10/mo. Gets more complex if you have multiple phone lines and want internet on all of them, though easy to have one internet line (through a router for multiple simultaneous in-house users) plus additional DSL or non-DSL lines.

2) landline and internet from cable TV providers - some will even provide phone and internet without a TV plan

3) wireless phone and internet - sometimes from local phone companies, or nationwide phone companies like Verizon - can be totally on a cell phone data plan, or some phone/cable companies provide wireless connection off nearby cable links for in-building service (including cordless or corded phones), plus separate cell phone coverage and plans

4) satellite phone and internet (and TV) from satellite companies like DirectTV.

All of these can serve a building either on cordless or corded phones - how that is set up is controlled by in-building configuration and retransmitters at your entry point.
