Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0057624A2] A system and method for advertising on pay telephone terminals over a communication network. A payphone management system collects advertising messages from advertisers, formats and stores the messages and collects revenue from the advertisers. An advanced pay telephone terminal receives and locally stores the advertising messages from the payphone management system. The advertising messages are displayed to users of the terminal in formats including full-motion video, still frame video, audio, animation and text. Advertising revenue subsidizes the cost of calling and serves to attract users to the terminal. In addition to subsidizing calling costs to the user, revenue sharing between the payphone operating company, the advertisers, the telephone company and the location owners is facilitated.
