Abstract

The invention is a computer-based public communication terminal apparatus for providing access to various communication networks, including the internet, and for rendering multifarious services. The terminal contains communication interface unit (7) containing computer hardware unita, human interface unit (1) containing computer hardware units, communication data processing unit (3) containing computer hardware units and/or software units and/or usual office devices, accounting unit (5), and computer control unit (4). It may also contain marketing communication unit (9) to ensure the forwarding of advertisements, propaganda or other informative messages to the user. The communication interface unit (7) of the terminal contains at least one interface device to ensure access to communication networks. The human interface unit (19 providing an interactive user surface contains at least one of image reproduction devices and/or data input devices and/or sound reproducing devices. The accounting unit (5) contains at least one of coin-, banknote-chip card- or online bank card-accepting unit as well as identification unit and authentication unit. The computer control unit (4) contains querying unit, authorizing unit and hardware controlling unit. The network connecting surfaces of the interface devices within the communication interface unit (7) constitute the external network connecting surface (8) of the terminal. The control-, data input, image and/or sound reproducing surfaces of the devices within the human interface unit (1) constitute the external interactive user surface (2) of the terminal. The control and reception surfaces of the coin-, banknote- or chip card or on-line bank card accepting units of the accounting unit (5) constitute the external user paying surface (6) of the terminal. The terminal is constructed so that each of the communication interface unit (7), the communication data processing unit (3), the accounting unit (5) and the human interface unit (1) is connected to the control unit (4) in a way that allows two-ways data transfer between them. The apparatus invented, is a computer terminal providing access to various communication networks, including the internet, which terminal is suitable for profitable operation without the presence of personnel. It is suitable e.g. for placement into public street booths to ensure the usual computer environment of the work place or the home for the multipurpose use required by the user.
