The group studies the techno-economic aspects of communication services and networks.
Network Economics

Our current research challenges include the quantitative analysis of:

The group develops and applies research methods such as statistical analysis, agent-based simulation, system dynamics, and techno-economic modeling. The research touches several micro-economic theories including switching costs, transaction costs, game theory, long tail, diffusion theory, two-sided markets, and prospect theory.


The research group is led by Professor Heikki Hämmäinen.
