A pricing mechanism to mediate (and allocate resources) between conflicting user and network objectives has been recently proposed by the authors in a single-cell system. Here, we extend the results to a multicell system, where the autonomous base station assignment and power control are formulated as a noncooperative game among users. The network prices the resources using two strategies: global pricing that maximizes the revenue, and minimax pricing that trades off the revenue for a more even resource allocation.
