What is GPRS?

GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service, and is a protocol for passing data over a mobile phone network. Here's what you need to know about GPRS:

  • GPRS replaced dial-up mobile phone Internet access, offering faster browsing of Internet content and email. It's an "always on" service".
  • GPRS on a mobile phone doesn't use a phone number to connect, it uses something called an APN (Access Point Name).
  • With GPRS, you don't pay for your online time per-minute, you pay for the amount of data you transfer.
  • GPRS has now been largely superseded by faster data network services known as 3G
