Network usage efficiency is important for network applications, such as audio, video-streaming, which are sensitive to data delivery delay. Researches in this area have been done in the last ten years. Most researches borrowed utility functions, game theory and other concepts from microeconomics to adjust user's behavior by applying pricing mechanisms in both wired and wireless network. In this paper, we present an overview of major directions in previous researches on wired and wireless network pricing for efficient usage. We discuss strengths and weaknesses of the proposals and conclude with a set of valuable features in pricing mechanisms.
