We propose a tariff structure for high speed multiservice networks which encourages the cooperative sharing of information between users and the network. In the case of on/off sources with a policed peak rate the tariff structure takes a very simple form: a charge a(m) per unit time and a charge b(m) per cell carried, where the pair (a(m),b(m)) are fixed by a declaration m, made by the user at the time of call admission, of the expected rate of the source.
