I think I need to get a second ISP in my home - help?

Hello, thank you for reading my post.
I currently have Comcast Xfinity as my ISP, and my IP address has not changed for years. We tried unplugging the modem for two weeks when we were on vacation and that didn't work. Comcast even came out and switched my modem to a new box and that didn't work either.
I have an online game I love to play with my friends and did something stupid with one of my characters, and they put an IP ban in place, so I cannot get onto the game at all.
Dad called Comcast to cancel the Internet so I could switch ISPs, but our phone, TV and Internet are bundled so it would cost more monthly if we cancelled the Internet.
I am thinking of getting my own ISP so I can have a new IP address, but I do not know if you can even have two different ISPs/IP addresses running from one location.
If my solution of getting a second ISP is workable (and yes, expensive and stupid on my part), any suggestions who to go with? Comcast was very fast with my gaming.
Alternatively, is there any way to get my Comcast IP to change that perhaps their reps and techs don't know about?
