    Earlier today I was baked while setting up the Internet in my flat and as I was researching different providers I thought fuck these companies would make a lot of money.

    So then I thought what if you could just act as a middle man to get these companies business but take a cut. So you would wait till it's a month where a lot of people are moving into new houses like the January/February months and distribute fliers telling them your internet plans which would be the plans of the cheapest provider possible but with your added tax. So a $60 plan would be $80 or something. Obviously they could go straight to the provider we're using but if you're in their face more than them they'll just go with you as it's easier than researching.

    That way you sit back and collect the money every month while paying their bill. The only issues I see is the legality of it all and the potential problems with people not paying but I guess you would just cancel the plan on their account.

    Anyway let me know what you guys think.

    Idea is fine, but why the shady route? Wouldn't it be easier to go straight to ISP and sign a promotion agreement that would legally allow you to do exactly the same thing?
