there are quite a few things you must consider before you can setup
such a thing. Will all three links provide the same bandwidth and will
you be using all three all of the time (i.e. what are the costs
involved?). If you want to use all three "parallel" you can still
decide if you want to give a certain uplink to a certain user-block
(source-hash) or just want to use them "balanced", which is more
tricky. Additionally you might want to use one link only if another
one dies (redundancy) in which case you will need some means of fault

Please provide more detailed information in order to receive help.
