Does such a physical flip switch exist (using 3 of the same Ethernet cables from modem to flip switch, and flip switch to router) that I can manually toggle between 2 uplinks.. example

VERIZON                OPTIMUM

                         |    < PHYSICAL FLIP SWITCH HERE TO CHANGE THE UPLINK TO ROUTER (BETWEEN VERIZON/OPTIMUM)
                    ROUTER

You could run the cable from each service to a three-port router and simply disable the port connected to the service you don't want to use.
