Q: Going on a rant: My ISP is starting to get under my skin. I was practicing English with my American friend when I started cutting off at the very beginning of the conversation. We ended up losing connection and we decided we would try another time. Now I can barely keep myself from kicking my 4G modem with a hammer. I haven't been practicing in ages and when I finally got to speak with a native it let me down big time.

soa natural?
A: "I haven't been practicing in ages..."
Try: "I haven't practiced in ages..."
"...And when I finally got to speak with a native it let me down big time."
Try: ...and when I finally got to speak with a native, my ISP let me down big time.
First the use of the comma allows the listener to know that you meant that your ISP let you down and not the person you tried to practice with, and second, because you are talking about a few things in this sentence you may want to restate "ISP" instead of the word "it" to avoid confusion. Very good English!
