Soft Inquires DO NOT HAVE ANY Impact On your Credit Score At all ( Period )

who ever told you it was a Soft Inquire lied to you from your new Internet provider.

ATT, Comcast, WOW  etc will ALWAYS Do a Hard Inquire if you have not had any account with them within the last 12 months. ( think it is 12, could be 6 or 8 )

Changing your internet provider would not have had any impact on your credit score.   Routinely standard bills (internet, phone, cell phone, utilities) are not reported unless you have an outstanding bill and it was reported in collections.   A 70 point drop is more reflective of a late payment and/or derogatory mark such as a collection or public notice.   You will want to review your credit report more thoroughly and compare it to the previousl month.
