Posted: 07-Mar-2001 [Source: Reuters]

[Vodafone says 2.5G network is ready and they are waiting for the handsets due later this year from several manufacturers.]

by Richard Meares, London -- "Vodafone Group Plc said on Wednesday it was on course to launch a full commercial service using GPRS fast mobile telephony by the second quarter although it did not have enough handsets yet.

"It said GPRS -- general packet radio service -- technology would be fully introduced this year, bringing data speeds as fast as today's desktop computers and an "always on" Internet connection.

"Vodafone has GPRS systems already in operation in Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, Portugal and Austria. By the second quarter this year, a commercial service will be in operation in all Vodafone's other controlled subsidiaries," it added.

"The network is ready, we just need the handsets to be available," a spokeswoman said.
