Changing ISP

I plan to call my ISP today and cancel service so that I can switch to a new ISP. I have a bad feeling about this. I was told that I would probably be without Internet access for about a week. I expect it may be longer. Not sure what I'll do without Internet. I will have access from work next week, but have the week of Christmas off. I'm trying to minimize the impact on our homeschooling that makes use of the Internet for online courses. Well, here goes.

Update: Our current service will be terminated on 12/24. We will get to keep our current e-mail addresses for 2 months. We cannot get the new service activated until after the old is actually terminated, so if we are not disconnected on 12/24 during the day, then I assume we'll have to call on 12/26. Installation is supposed to be scheduled within 7 days of the call.

In the mean while, I am trying to arrange an alternate connection for the down time. We'll see how that works. I really do not want to be down.

I think we are going to burn through our Starbucks gift cards before the DSL is turned off.
