Using an ISP provided email address will make you more hesitant to change ISP's, it's a form of lock in. It's best to ween yourself off using it.

My advice would be:
1: Sign up for gmail
2: Enable IMAP in gmail
3: Setup Gmail to fetch email from ISP specific addresses into Gmail
4: Setup Thunderbird to access Gmail via IMAP
5: Setup other devices eg: Smartphone to access Gmail
