A MOWNET is a wireless network that uses financial incentives to make different agents collaborate. In this paper, architecture is proposed to use MOWNETs for Internet service providing. Limited shared bandwidth is a substantial problem in wireless Internet access, which can be alleviated by increasing the number of base stations and decreasing the transmission power of each station. A promising approach to commercialize this idea is using financial incentives to encourage people to collaborate in building the network. Adding financial incentives to the network protocols and using anonymous relay agents incur substantial considerations in network design, which are considered in our protocol.
