GPRS stands for ‘General Support Packet Radio Service’ and is a Mobile Data Service available to users of GSM. It’s a legacy data technology that became available when 2.5G networks were rolled out. It is the slowest form of IP connectivity that a phone can get at max 80 kbps. That’s about 7 mins to download one song!
