Title: Communication startup processing system

Abstract: A communication startup processing system has an introduction processor which, upon reception of a connection request from a user terminal through a communication path established via a network service provider using a public circuit, transfers destination information as to a user terminal to be connected to, to another user terminal. When information relative to a connection is transmitted from the other user terminal directly or through the introduction processor from the public circuit, a communication processor disconnects a circuit and starts a connection processor according control information included in the transmitted information, and connects again to a user terminal which has issued a connection request through the communication path based on the transmitted information. Since the communication processors of the user terminals make respective connections to the communication path for mutual communications between the user terminals, the expenses of the mutual communications are equalized between the user terminals.
