WiMAX/IEEE 802.16 Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) is a very open technology with various possible services. While different technical aspects of that technology have been addressed, the pricing of WiMAX has received little attention until now. In this paper, we analyze the performance of a WiMAX pricing scheme that we proposed in previous works. Through extensive simulations, we evaluate the importance of a well-planned WiMAX pricing framework by comparing our proposed scheme with a basic one. Then, we study the sensitivity of the proposed pricing scheme with regard to the parameters values choices. We show that our proposed pricing scheme still provides better revenue than a basic one for a difference up to 30% more or less than the best values chosen.
