wholesale price


[link to this post]
 
hi guys!
I have to buy few deals, in fact 3 home broadband contracts.
I tried to compare the options through moneysupermarket, uswitch and others but unfortunately, it isn't possible to compare the prices according to buying more than a one deal at the time.
my question is: how can I get best deal-wholesale price- for signing up for 3 contracts at once?
thank you very much all!

The only way is to phone ISPs and negotiate.

You just gave us a list of sites that big ISPs pay to be featured in their comparisons, and that almost certainly get a further payment if you click through from there to the ISP's site. A very small number of ISPs compared to the hundred or more out there.

As XRaySpex says, you could try haggling, but I doubt if you will get anywhere.

You could ask Entanet, who provide wholesale contracts to small suppliers, but I expect they would want a few more than three customers from you.

As you seem to be focussed on price, am I right to conclude the quality of the service is irrelevant?

I agree that haggling is unlikely to get results just for 3 sales but if it does OP should ensure something in writing before he hands over card details.
