    Abstract

    Wireless commons provide a unique and organic way to build a wireless broadband infrastructure. It is a group in which individuals take actions toward creating and using a common resource by opening their private wireless local area networks (WLAN). Wireless commons are expected to play an indispensable role for communications and commerce as wireless access needs increase with the rapid proliferation of mobile handheld computing devices. The size of an artificial wireless broadband networks (WBN) commons is not fixed like its physical counterparts, its size varies depending on the number and quality of hotspots associated at a given point of time. The utilization of a wireless commons fluctuates rapidly and constantly, which creates a disincentive for people close to public meeting places to open their WLAN.
