Forthcoming wireless environment is a fusion of numerous networks with diverse technologies deployed by individual operators. In such an environment, innovative network selection methodologies are required not only to provide "Always best connected" service to mobile users but also to maximize network operator's revenue. To fulfill such requirements, multiple attributes from each network are to be systematically assessed. Consequently network selection becomes an issue of Multiple Attribute Decision Making (MADM). Various MADM algorithms have been proposed for use in network selection decision process.
