Özet

We consider a communication market where a set of wireless operators compete over a large common pool of users. The latter have a reservation utility of U-o units or, equivalently, an alternative option to satisfy their communication needs. The operators must satisfy these minimum requirements in order to attract the users. In this setting, we analyze how the users select operators and how the operators compete for the users. We identify the critical system parameters and study how they affect the market operation.
