We propose an efficient service management technique that enhances the quality of experience (QoE) of 4G users by enabling them to locate the best available network service provider (NSP) among many existing NSPs. We also propose a practical method that 4G users can use to implement the proposed technique in a purely distributed manner. Using simulations, we show that the proposed technique i) increases network service availability by allowing 4G users to quickly find available NSPs, ii) are very scalable by performing well regardless of the number of users in the system, and iii) are implementable in decentralized fashion by relying on information that can be observed locally and without any cooperation.
