4 Things To Do Before Switching Internet Providers
FIBER INTERNET PLANS: WHAT YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE SWITCHING
Once you have found the right internet provider, there are a few things you need to do first. You can’t just switch over and call it a day. There are some steps you have to take. What are they? Follow me down below.
WHAT YOU NEED TO HAVE ON YOU
1) A computer
2) A modem
3) Phone line
4) Wireless connection
THE STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE
1) Contact the company. Ask them what you need to sign. It’s better to get the paperwork out of the way beforehand. Handling it during the process will just slow you down and make things too confusing.
2)Contact your server and ask them how to disconnect. Tell them you are switching. They will gladly walk you through it.
3) You will have to delete all of your current software and their programs. There might be an uninstall button already there.
4) You might need to go into the individual programs in the control panel to get rid of certain programs. It might take some time.
5) Once this is all done, contact your new service provider. Have them walk you through the steps. You will have to activate your new account with them. You will also need to install their software programs on your computer or PC.
OTHER THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN SWITICHING
When you change ISP servers and domains you might end up losing some of your information. Don’t worry, this happens to everyone. It’s nothing to fret over. This gets especially frustrating if you use the service provider for business purposes. There is a simple solution for this. Choose a separate domain for your business and email the domain ISP address to yourself. This way you can get in a lot easier.
If you have a bundled service, which many of you have, you will need to make arrangements with each of them. Let them know. You will need to set up the account for all three.
If you are using a website for your work and pleasure, that site needs to accommodate this move. Be sure they can work with your new ISP server account. Check to see if the domain can be linked to your site. It should be able to perform this task. Talk to them prior to the go-live date. In fact, your new provider should be able to test your new service before the go-live date.
