Outsourced utility bargain hunting

It should be possible to outsource your utility bargain hunting. You'd sign up with a utilities broker and they make sure you get the best deals on electricity, phone, internet and so on. So far most places that do this offer it as a one-off connection service and are in bed with alternative providers. I'm talking about paying ABC Utilities for your electricity, water, phone, gas and internet in one bill, trusting that they will find you the best prices for each individual service, or the best bundled price for some. It might be a difficult business model unless your operating costs are low, since you'd have to take a cut for every client which might eat up their incentive to pay you instead of bargain-hunting on their own.
