BT Cellnet Launches World's First GPRS Service
Posted: 22-Jun-2000 [Source: Reuters]

[UK corporations can now take advantage of "always-on" GPRS connections thanks to today's service launch from BT Cellnet.]

London -- "BT Cellnet said it launched the world's first "always-on" mobile network on Thursday, introducing GPRS technology that is expected to revolutionize the way people use the Internet.

"Britain's second largest mobile operator is initially making GPRS (general packet radio service) available only to businesses, allowing traveling workers to form wireless connections between their laptops and their head office computers.

"But consumers will get access to the technology by the first quarter of next year, with the launch of mobile handsets that are permanently connected to the Internet.

"Users will be able to access WAP (wireless application protocol) Web sites and receive e-mail without first having to dial into an Internet service.
