General Packet Radio Service or GPRS is a data service concept for mobile computing devices - phones, PDAs, and wearable systems. GPRS data transfer is typically charged per megabyte of transferred data as opposed to per minute connected, making it ideal for data burst systems that don?t need to transmit large volumes all the time, but do need to maintain a steady connection.

GPRS is packet-based, which means many people can timeshare on the same line, sending packets at discrete intervals. This makes it perfect for data tagging applications such as healthcare.
