Don't they have a small relocation fee that will let you take it with you?

suck it up, its not that bad. I went from having 4 T1 lines at school (which was weird because it was only 1 line freshman year and then they upgraded it and it got slower) back to dial up when I graduated and moved home.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
