A data communicating terminal (11) is connected to an information providing server (15) by a packet switching method and the information page obtained from the information providing server (15) is displayed on a display section. The information page obtained from the information providing server (15) includes the information such as text-based web page. Once a link to multi-media data is selected, the connection of the data communicating terminal (11) to the presently using packet switching network (13) is disconnected. Then, the data communicating terminal (11) is newly connected to channels by a channel switching method and reconnected to an MMS server via a channel switching network (14). Channel connections are thus dynamically switched between the packet switching connection and channel switching connection.; It is, therefore, possible to efficiently obtain various types of contents such as multi-media data, text-based information and the like.
