Nowadays consumers dispose of Internet connections with increasing capacity in such a way that those connections are frequently underused.

This is partially because there are several entities playing crucial roles in the realization of this model, e.g. users, service suppliers and authorities and aspects from several dimensions, e.g. technical, regulatory and business that must be considered.
