The Internet was born approximately 20 years ago out of a project to integrate a US Defence Department Network called ARPAnet. This integration involved radio satellite voice and data networks. The Internet has completely revolutionised public communication networks. The concept of using the Internet for a metering communications service is proposed. The use of the Internet for a range of customer services in the residential and industrial area is also detailed.

The potential characteristics of this type of communication architecture are established for efficient transport of data services
