Pricing of Coexisting Cellular and Community Networks
Community networks have emerged as an alternative to licensed band systems (WiMAX, 4G, etc.), providing an access to the Internet with Wi-fi technology while covering large areas. A community network is easy and cheap to deploy, as the network is using members’ access points in order to cover the area. We study the competition between a community operator and a traditional operator (using a licensed band system) through a game-theoretic model, while considering the mobility of each user in the area.
