Multicast and broadcast service (MBS) is a service offered by the base station (BS) to multiple receivers requesting the same information. Such a BS must be kept updated with the receivers' feedback information (e.g., packet loss rates) to configure the MBS. We propose MBS operation schemes that are dominant-strategy incentive compatible in game theory, i.e., the schemes induce dominant-strategy equilibria, where all selfish receivers reveal their true information. Moreover, the induced equilibria are Pareto efficient and max-min fair. To conclude, the proposed schemes can elicit true feedback information from the receivers, avoiding any manipulation and, thereby, ensuring an efficient and fair system operation.
