And, of course, if you move house, your current ISP might not be
available. Or you decide you need/don't need cable TV/landline, and
want to switch provider. Or Fibre To The Cabinet/Premises arrives via
a different provider. These are all reasons not to commit to your ISP
as email address provider.

It's cheap to register your own domain and find a suitable hosting
provider. This makes moving and travelling much simpler.
