Speaking of simple, it shouldn't be so difficult to manage an Internet Service, should it? I mean, the hardware tech is only almost 100 years old and should be bug free by now. And two weeks to get switched to a new provider? Yikes! We can change providers with almost no noticeable disruption in service here in the "states." You have my sympathy.
