    The internet connection by a new provider.

    "I want to get my internet disconnected by my current internet provider. I want a new connection by a different provider because my current connection keeps dropping out. I have problem getting online when needed. (is it wrong to say "come online?")

    Please check.

    Re: The internet connection by a new provider.

    My internet connection keeps dropping out so I'm going to sign up with a new provider.

    That's all you need to say.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "I want to get my internet disconnected by my current internet provider." Could you please tell me that what is the correct way to say this?

    You can say, "I want to drop my current provider", but emsr's post #2 includes this implicitly.

    It's unnecessarily wordy- who else but your current provider could do this?

    Re: The internet connection by a new provider.

    Just for once, you have created two sentences from what should have been one. Also, "dropping up" is incorrect.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: The internet connection by a new provider.

    I called my internet service provider, telling them that I would sign up with a new provider if my connection kept dropping out.
    I am not a teacher.

    I think the comma is not required.

    I called my internet service provider telling them that I would change service provider if the connection problem persists.
