iCloud and Fastmail

Hello everyone, I'm here to hear your thoughts on my current email situation.

- My current email is on iCloud (firstname.surname@me.com)
- I have a Fastmail address (firstname@fastmail.com)

Both are quite good looking addresses.

I'm considering to move completely to Fastmail (mail, contacts, calendar) and set a forwarding iCloud > Fastmail, but:

- Some services may still remain in iCloud, e.g. Drive.
- I like that iCloud is 'forever' - no payment required, no minimum access, no expiration date
- I'm an Apple user (iPhone, iPad, Macbook) and iCloud works really well - I like that is all integrated in 1 service (drive, contacts, calendar, mail). I'm also a minimalist and don't like to have many separate services.

I like Fastmail service and interface, but if I stop paying I would simply loose everything - I don't feel very safe.

What do you guys think?

Thank you and happy new year!

I am of the divide and rule principle.
Mail, contacts, calender: Google (forwarding from Pobox).
Files: Apple (iCloud).
Photos: Yahoo (Flickr).

I don't particularly like Google and would like to use their services as little as possible - I have an old gmail address that forwards to my icloud.
