First thing is to be an educated consumer. Know what going rates and sla s cost for a given service. Also check the rep of the vendor. I find that competitive bids work well. Unless your a gov or something you dont have to take the lowest bid - take the best one.

Subject: Contract negotiations advice?
I am dealing with a large telecom which purchased the small telecom I
signed a contract with.
Despite signing only 1 contract with them, the two racks, and the
bandwidth which feeds 1 rack (I connect privately to the second rack at
no charge) all have different termination dates.
How signing one contract resulted in 3 different end of term dates,
months apart, I can't quite figure out.
Can anyone point me to a mailing list or discussion forum containing
advice on dealing with such issues? And the wider issue of negotiating
good rates with telecoms?
