Ok so an update - I never went through with it. Surprise surprise.
First, when I emailed BigPipe, they were trying to be helpful and told me I should let the new ISP handle the request. I tried explaining it to them but then I got sick and ended up stuck at home for a few days. I figured I'd keep it until I was better, and then, well the rest is history.
I do want to get off the couch more and get my head into books though. Posting this embarrassing post is a good enough reminder that I do in fact want to watch less TV and spend more time living my own life instead of watching others live made up ones. I'll keep you all posted.
