Internet relocation aextniyYou like that? I just made that term up. Anyway, when you're about to make a big move, either across the state or across the country, you've got enough stuff to worry about. Boxes, moving truck, housing, getting your cars there, finding schools for your kids don't forget your internet service! Of course, if you're like me, it's the first thing you think about. I don't claim to be normal. So how do you find out who offers high speed in your new digs? Here's a few simple tips:Ask your current provider: You've got to call them to disconnect anyway, right? Ask them if they offer service at your new address. If they do, great! They'll get you all set up with a transfer of service. If they don't, ask them if they know any providers there. They might not, but hey, you've already got them on the phone. Just plug in your new ZIP code and you'll get a list of cable, DSL, and wireless internet providers in the area. Bonus, they offer user reviews and and ratings, so you can see who's good and who's not. Well, you know seems like you can find everything else there, why not. If the above options fail, you can always type cable internet [name of city and state] or dsl [name of city and state] and you should get a list of local providers.Ask someone who lives there: Moving for work? Ask your coworkers-to-be who they use. Moving for family? Ask them who they use. Ask your realtor or apartment rental office who the local options are. All of them will probably offer some opinions too, which you can't get from looking at a provider's website.Of course, if you're moving to a fringe area, you may find that all providers may not be able to uh provide service in your location. This is common in rural areas or at the fringes of new subdivisions on the edges of town. In the former case, you may be stuck with either dialup (oh, the horror) or some form of wireless, whether it's terrestial wifi, cellular data, or satellite. In the latter case, it's usually just a matter of the housing developers building faster than the internet providers can extend the infrastructure, and you'll just have to wait a bit. In the meantime, you might consider one of the previously mentioned not-so-high speed options until they get to you.Good luck with the move and your search!
