In our approach, the optimal price for each service is determined from the demand elasticity for the service, as well as the opportunity cost of providing the service.

Anandalingam, Senior Member, IEEE Abstract— We consider pricing for multiple services offered over a single telecommunications network. Thus, the monopolist's optimal pricing strategy may involve offering discounts to certain agents who have a central position in the underlying network. Our results can be summarized as follows.
First, we consider a setting where the monopolist can offer individualized prices and derive a characterization of the optimal price for each consumer Cited by: Optimal Pricing Scheme for Information Services Abstract This paper examines which, among three commonly used pricing schemes: the flat-fee, pure usage-based and the two-part tariff pricing, is optimal for a monopolist providing information services.
Our analysis suggests that under zero marginal costs and monitoring costs, when. Debate about deregulation has focused considerable attention on the pricing policies of public utilities.

Abstract. Public utilities often impute a value to an asset when determining the rate base for the regulated portion of the company, in particular when the asset is partially or even completely utilized by a subsidiary (in such a case, an imputed reduction in the rate base).Cited by: 5.
