Abstract

We consider a two-sided market model with a monopolistic Internet Service Provider ISP, network congestion sensitive content providers CPs, and Internet customers in order to study the impact of Quality-of-Service QoS tiering on service innovation, broadband investments,and welfare in comparison to network neutrality. We find that QoS tiering is the more ecient regime in the short-run. However it does not promote entry by new, congestion sensitive CPs, because the ISP can expropriate much of the CPs- surplus. In the long-run, QoS tiering may lead to more or less broadband capacity and welfare, depending on the competition-elasticity of CPs- revenues.
