Thereof, why do firms use two part tariffs?
A two-part tariff (TPT) is a form of price discrimination wherein the price of a product or service is composed of two parts - a lump-sum fee as well as a per-unit charge. It is designed to enable the firm to capture more consumer surplus than it otherwise would in a non-discriminating pricing environment.
what is two part pricing example? Two-Part Pricing (also called Two Part Tariff) = a form of pricing in which consumers are charged both an entry fee (fixed price) and a usage fee (per-unit price). Examples of two-part pricing include a phone contract that charges a fixed monthly charge and a per-minute charge for use of the phone.
Thereof, what determines a two part tariff?
One common model for a two-part tariff is to set the per-unit price equal to marginal cost (or the price at which marginal cost meets the consumers' willingness to pay) and then set the entry fee equal to the amount of consumer surplus that consuming at the per-unit price generates.

Second-degree price discrimination occurs when a company charges a different price for different quantities consumed, such as quantity discounts on bulk purchases.
