At this moment WAP phones are limited by a data transfer rate of 9.6kbps but GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) is expected to launch in the next 6 - 12 months. This will increase data transfer rates to 40.2kbps, which is about the same download speed you can expect on an average landline.Higher data transfer rates mean that GPRS will be able to support streaming audio and video.

Mobile phones with built-in camcorders will mean you can send real-time postcards and video footage over the Internet .The global GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) market is now beginning to take off. With the capability to charge per data bit sent and received, customers will be able to pay only for usage.

GPRS will offer a tenfold increase in data throughput rates, from 9.6kbit/s to 115kbit/s. Using a packet data service; subscribers are always connected and always on line so services will be easy and quick to access.
