GPRS - General Packet Radio Service


GPRS was introduced in mid-2001. It allows a handset to be permanently connected for data usage without being charged for the time of the connection. Charges are only incurred when actual data is sent or received.

The other main advantage of GPRS is that it is capable of receiving data up to 3 times faster than a normal handset. This make GPRS ideal for connection to corporate servers and for use with WAP.
