We consider a general problem of optimal assignment of users to providers of wireless telecommunication networks, which minimizes the total expenses and has certain resource allocation restrictions. We show that it can be formulated as an extended transportation problem. Due to variability of demand and inexactness of data we suggest to solve this problem by a suitable penalty method. We consider both full and partial versions of this method and show that the latter has certain preferences. The computational experiments confirm these conclusions.
