D'Auria and Kanta (2015) showed that in a two node tandem network, a pure equilibrium threshold strategy exists when customers only have partial information about the state of the system upon their arrival. In this paper, we generalize the result of D'Auria and Kanta (2015) to a multi-node tandem network, by giving a very simple proof.
