We state and analyze a non-cooperative approach to the provision of public goods where agents decide simultaneously not only their private contribution but also their level of utilization which may differ among consumers (contributors and non-contributors). We show that the distribution of intensities of use matters and allows us to deepen the analysis of altruistic behaviors, neutrality results, congestions issues, and further externalities captured within our framework.
