Wireless and Mobile Internet have changed the way people and businesses
operate. Communication from any Internet access point, including wireless
networks such as UMTS, GPRS or WLAN has enabled organizations to have
a mobile workforce. However, networked applications such as web, email,
streaming multimedia etc. rely upon the ability of timely data delivery. The
achievable throughput is a quality measure for the very task of a communication
system, which is to transport data in time. Throughput is thus one
of the most essential enablers for networked applications.

level as a weighted average of several different prices.
