GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service.

When GSM – Global System for Mobiles – was launched the Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW) was taking shape and form. As the Internet is all about processing packages of information that is known as packets. GPRS was an enabler to allow GSM to interact / communicate with a Packet Network. Early applications were based on USSD and WAP (WML).

At the time (2018) of writing we now have 3G, 4G and the emerging 5G. Each Generation provides a number of improvements for Radio / Data / etc.. communication.


xG – Generation, e.g. 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, etc.

WAP – Wireless Access Protocol

WML – Wireless Markup Language

USSD – Unstructured Supplementary Services Data
