Peering and transit are two types of Internet interconnection among ISPs. Peering has been a core concept to sustain Internet industry. However, for the past several years, many ISPs broke their peering arrangement because of asymmetric traffic pattern and asymmetric benefit and cost from the peering. Even though traffic flows are not a good indicator of(More)
In this paper, we study the influence of QoS pricing strategy in the future QoS Internet market. We create a Bertrand duopoly game model with different pricing schemes: One ISP with flat rate pricing for its QoS service and the other ISP with two part tariff, a combined pricing scheme with flat rate and usage-sensitive pricing. Based on industry survey(More)
With an emphasis on creating ubiquitous Internet access to bridge the digital gap between location and access speed, the refinement of wireless technologies has it so that cities can reap the socioeconomic benefits of the Internet. The 3 rd generation (3G) and wireless fidelity (WiFi) are the two main wireless technologies which access Internet using(More)
The Internet industry is generally considered to be vertically structured with the Internet Backbone Provider (IBP-long distance service carrier) in the upstream and Internet Service Providers (ISP) in the downstream. Although there are many ISPs and IBPs in each stream, both markets are considered independent oligopolies in that there are a few dominant(More)
Cellular phone users in Korea can watch TV using their mobile phones. The new multimedia service for the mobile users is called Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB). DMB is a process of broadcasting multimedia over the Internet or satellite that can be tuned in by multimedia receivers or players. There are two competing DMB technology standards in South(More)
In this paper, the equilibrium outcomes of the Internet quality of service (QoS) game model are analyzed when two rural Internet Access Providers (IAPs) interact with several business and technical strategies such as technology, best effort (BE) or QoS, pricing scheme (flat-rate pricing or a two-part tariff), and investment in network capacity. Considering(More)
One of the major areas for research and investment related to the Internet is the provision of quality of service (QoS). In this paper, study the equilibrium outcomes when two Internet Access Providers (IAPs) interact. These IAPs are assumed to be rural dialup providers (as data shows that duopolies often exist in such markets), using empirically based(More)
