The next generation multiple integrated networks require coalition and the rational distribution of calls between network providers. In this paper we exploit the coalition agreements between service providers in order to achieve maximum revenue. We formulate the distribution of calls as a multi-stage dynamic game between service providers and users. We solve the game to get the best strategy that determines the rational distribution of incoming calls between the home provider and the co-provider. We have set up an environment to test the efficiency of coalition agreements between service providers in terms of the distribution of calls and maximum revenue for the providers.
