Yes, you have to have a new contract as it is a new service. You can ask for any money left on your old cable account to be rolled over into your new account.
-Think carefully about the speed you want and how much download you want.
-You will get a new Sagecom modem that is an "AC" modem. Basically it allows 2.4 Ghz (the old system) and 5Ghz wifi. 5 Ghz doesn't travel as far as the old system BUT the speeds you get are phenominal...almost the same as a direct ethernet connection. If you decide to take advantage of 5Ghz you'll need to buy a new internet adaptor for you PC. Look on Ebay as they are cheap there. Make sure the description says "dual band AC- 2.4/5 GHz".
-Your landline phones will now run through your new modem. You can make your old landline phones work by running a male to male RJ phone line from the modem to a phone point...you can use a piggyback plug adapter if need be.
