In the broadband mobile service market, it is reasonable that the carrier (service provider) should choose a Paretoefficient resource allocation policy so that both the revenue of the carrier and the utility of users can be maximized. In this paper, we investigate the fundamental problem of the existence of resource allocation policies that are Pareto-efficient between the revenue and the utility. We show that the revenue-maximizing policy is not always equal to the utility-maximizing policy… CONTINUE READING
