The node comprises service defining means arranged to define a plurality of services; a first resource comprising a speech segment store containing, in use, speech segments, each segment having a corresponding identity, and resource controlling means arranged to convert a received command signal to a corresponding succession of speech segment identities for a speech announcement corresponding to the command signal, to access the speech segment store in accordance with said speech segment identities, to generate the corresponding speech segments for the speech announcement and to provide an announcement finished signal when a last speech segment of the announcement has been generated; a switch arranged to connect the first resource to an incoming call routed by the network to the service node; and node controlling means arranged to respond to such anincoming call to pass details of the call to the service defining means for processing, queueing the call as necessary, to pass signals from the service defining means to the first resource and to the switch, and to pass announcement finished signals from the first resource to the service defining means.
