How to move Internet while keeping the same company
These are the steps you must follow to move while keeping the same Internet access provider:
-Check that the ISP also offers its services in the area of the new address.
-Contact the ISP to request (if possible) the transfer of the contract to the new location.
-Set up an appointment with the ISP installer to install and configure access at the new address.

It is recommended to keep all these elements properly identified in a box that should not be mixed with the rest of the equipment in order to facilitate their search in the installation in the new home.
What to do if you need a new Internet provider
In case the ISP does not offer its services at the new address it will be up to you to contract Internet access with another company that does. In this case, in addition to choosing the best Internet provider, it will also be necessary to take into account possible contracts with permanence that could oblige you to continue paying the contract to the ISP until a time after the date of the move.

In the event of termination of the contract with the previous ISP these. usually claim delivery of the router. It is not necessary to keep the original packaging, just place it in a box or bag properly protected and follow the delivery instructions provided by the supplier.
