This article develops a charging scheme that is simple and easily usable for the users and provides them with the incentives to use only the resources they need. This scheme is developed on the time-volume charging approach to show how the contributing providers can share the total charge earned by each mobile and wireless service instance in a fair way, with each provider collecting the portion of charge that corresponds to the consumption of its own resources for the service. This is also an important issue for the commercial viability of mobile services to mobile users, given that its provision spans multiple domains. Our proposed architecture is compliant to the relevant standards and can serve as a basis for applying other Internet charging schemes as well. © 2011 IEEE.
