Kim and I made the decision recently to switch to satellite tv from our increasingly expensive cable. They installed our satellite tv, I made arrangements with the cable company to disconnect the cable television-- but not our cable internet access.
Sure enough, the technician cut off both, and I had to wait for another technician to show up to reconnect it. We were without internet access since yesterday afternoon. That was no problem, though-- I got a call yesterday afternoon from Bubs, who was in the neighborhood, and he dropped by for a cup of coffee and conversation.
