Nowadays learners have access to multiple wireless networks from the same hand held device challenging them to choose the best network in terms of cost and performance. However, the Internet billing plans are still difficult to understand, predict and control by most users. This paper presents a user oriented adaptive e-learning framework which takes into consideration: (i) the learner profile when content adaptation is done, (ii) user device that can have multiple wireless connections with different characteristics, (iii) how much the learner is willing to pay, and (iv) the network delivery performance. The goal is to ensure that the learner gets educational content that best suits his/her profile and that content will be delivered over the network which assures the best delivery performance, maintaining also a small price for getting the requested information.
