1. A method for generating a neighbor cell information message in a cellular telecommunication network, wherein said neighbor cell information message informs a mobile station about cells nearby the mobile station (neighbor cells), said neighbor cell information message providing, for each neighbor cell, specific values for each of a plurality of parameters, wherein each parameter is a characteristic of a cell, comprising the steps of:

  • identifying common parameter values, wherein each of said common parameter values is a specific value common to at least two neighbor cells of the same parameter;

    outputting a set of said identified common values; and

    generating a neighbor cell information message, in which the specific value of a parameter of a specific neighbor cell is indicated by specifying a member of said set of identified common values when the specific value is one of said identified common values.
