The thesis aims at extending the capabilities of devices and enabling cooperation, i.e., data connection sharing, among users who may or may not necessarily be related to or know each other. To achieve this objective as well as to validate the results of our theoretical analysis, we developed a smart-phone application for data connection sharing. By means of data connection sharing, users may influence the pricing schemes of mobile network operators, increase spectrum utilization and build their own cooperative network.
