1. A communication control device, comprising:
a terminal information acquisition unit which acquires, from a terminal device, terminal-related information including communication service information relating to a communication service executed by the terminal device, and network information relating to a network to which the terminal device can connect, from among a plurality of networks;
a selection unit which selects, among a plurality of combinations of networks each of which can be used by each of a plurality of communication services executed by a plurality of terminal devices respectively, a combination of networks having a smallest total communication cost to be charged for each of the plurality of communication services in each of the plurality combinations of networks, on the basis of the terminal-related information, and network-related information including communication cost information relating to a cost to be charged for using the networks, and communication bandwidth information relating to communication bandwidth that can be allocated to the terminal device; and
a network control unit which executes a network control such that the networks used respectively by each of the plurality of communication services are the selected combination of networks,
wherein the selection of the combination of networks is made by calculating a ratio of needed communication bandwidth for each of the plurality of communication services in relation to the communication bandwidth that can be allocated to each of the terminal devices in the plurality of networks, and selecting a combination of networks yielding a total calculated ratio of not more than 100% in respect of each of the plurality of networks.
