Abstract The invention provides tariff information for specific destinations and target terminals on a telecommunications network, to indicate to users the tariff applicable before establishing a connection. The system may also be used in order to provide the elements of information needed to enable calculation of costs for a pre-payment system. For these purposes, the tariff information is coded inside a normalised call control message which is transmitted to establish the connection, and is intended to be received by at least one of the terminals before establishing the connection. The invention is used for radiophone.
