|Title:||COMMUNICATION NETWORK CHARGING METHOD AND SYSTEM|
More and more content providers are making WML/HTML pages (i.e. information content) available on servers in communication networks. Subscribers can call up said information content and download it. The aim of the invention is to provide a method and a system for content-based charging of information transmitted via a communication network. The criteria for classifying a WML page in a pricing system are incumbent upon the content provider. A WAP gateway acts as an interface between the subscriber and the data-based internet world. All WML/HTML/XML content which is called up by subscribers goes via said WAP gateway. According to the invention, a network unit is provided in order to answer any queries regarding pricing from subscribers.
