PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To efficiently obtain different types of contents such as multi-media data or the information of a text base from a network. SOLUTION: A data communications terminal (MS) 11 is connected with an information offering server 15 by packet exchange connection and displays an information page obtained from the information offering server 15. The information page obtained from the information offering server 15 is exemplified by the web page of a text base. When a link with multi-media data is selected, the data communication terminal (MS) 11 disconnects a packet exchange network 13, with which connection is being executed newly operates line connection by line exchange connection, and establishes a new connection with an MMS server 17 via a line exchange network 14. Thus, the line connection configuration can be switched dynamically between the packet exchange connection and the line exchange connection according to contents.
