Abstract: 
The Internet content delivery market has been positioned for tremendous growth. To capture the essentials of pricing structures in this market, we develop an economic model incorporating prices with provider investments in the demand function, and obtain equilibrium prices and investments under both monopoly and competitive settings for transport providers. We also investigate network neutrality and price discrimination issues in this market.
