    GPRS – General Packet Radio Service

    Short for General Packet Radio Service, a standard for wireless communications which runs at speeds up to 115 kilobitsper second, compared with current GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) systems’ 9.6 kilobits.

    GPRS, which supports a wide range of bandwidths, is an efficient use of limited bandwidth and is particularly suited for sending and receiving small bursts of data, such as e-mail and Web browsing, as well as large volumes of data.
