Next generation networks and service providers are rapidly
evolving in order to satisfy the demands of an increasing number of users.
Nowadays, one of the most relevant research lines in the Heterogeneous
Wireless Access Networks realm is the use of procedures and mechanisms
so as to provide intelligence to the network, with the main goal of
optimizing its performance. Furthermore, mobile communication users
are becoming more demanding, and thus it becomes essential for the
providers to be able to offer a competitive value for money. This paper
pursues the objective of obtaining, from an analytical perspective, the
optimum price assignment strategy according to the characteristics of a
particular scenario, analyzing the improvement attained with such optimum
pricing policy as compared to a more traditional one. Game theory
techniques, which are gathering the interest within the communications
scientific community, are used for the analysis.
