Dropping DSL, but want to keep our @sbcglobal email accounts

Unfortunately, the only internet service provided by AT&T in our location is DSL.  This technology does not compare to high-speed offers.  I am going to close my DSL account, but keep my Direct TV and AT&T cell phones.  I want to keep our @sbcglobal email addresses so that I do not have to change accounts.  So my question is, if I cancel our DSL service, can we keep our sbcglobal emails without any interruption or loss of files?

Hello @jckokc

We understand you have a question about your email account in if you would loose it if you cancel DSL internet.

To answer your question you can keep your email account.
