Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9930293A2] The present invention is based on the principle that, when a data network such as the Internet (25) is used through a telephone operator, the services and products available for purchase from the Internet (25) can be billed in conjunction with the telephone operator's billing. According to the invention, the connection from the caller (20) through the telecommunications network is formed through an intelligent network, i.e. an SSP exchange (21), so that it is possible for an SCP database (23) to influence the billing of the call, even retroactively. The invention is also based on the principle of linking together the A digital identity transmitted by the telecommunications network and the username known to the Internet (25) when making a connection to an Internet call series (22). In this case, billing for a service used in, or a product ordered from the Internet (25) can be performed by transmitting the total amount to be billed to the SCP (23), on the basis of the A digital identity corresponding to the Internet username.
