Abstract: An infrastructure equipment of a wireless communications network is configured to transmit signals to one or more communications devices via a wireless access interface, and to receive signals from one or more of the communications devices via the wireless access interface. The wireless access interface provides communications resources arranged in time divided units of a carrier frequency bandwidth providing a plurality of blocks of communications resources, each of the time divided units comprising on a downlink of the wireless access interface a control channel for transmitting control channel messages and a shared channel, the control channel message allocating communications resources of the shared channel to the communications devices to receive the signals from the one or more infrastructure equipment. The infrastructure equipment is configured to transmit data, as a plurality of data units, to the one or more communications devices, each data unit being encoded for transmission in accordance with a repeat request-type process, the encoding providing an indication of whether the data has been received correctly by a communications device. Each of the data units is transmitted in one of a repeating number of consecutive time divided units according to a separately controlled repeat request-type process. The transmitter is configured to transmit a control message allocating resources of the shared channel for receiving a data unit of a repeat request-type process which is one or more time divided units after a time divided unit in which the control message is transmitted, and the number of repeat request-type processes in the repeating pattern of time divided units is increased from a first number in the first mode to a second number in the second mode. An infrastructure equipment of a wireless communications network is configured to transmit signals to one or more communications devices via a wireless access interface, and to receive signals from one or more of the communications devices via the wireless access interface.

Abstract: Efficient data transfer over a public network is achieved. A terminal searching unit searches for a neighboring terminal device. A display unit displays a list of terminal devices discovered by the terminal searching unit. A terminal selecting unit selects a predetermined terminal device included in the list based on the list displayed on the display unit. A data transmission unit transmits data using the predetermined terminal device selected by the terminal selecting unit as a relay. The list of neighboring terminal devices discovered by the search is displayed and a predetermined terminal device is selected using the list and is used for relay transfer, which allows the user to easily select a predetermined terminal device to be used for the relay transfer. Efficient data transfer over a public network is achieved. A terminal searching unit searches for a neighboring terminal device.
