GPRS Give Major Facilities Such as :

With throughput rates of up to 40 kbps, users have a similar access speed to a dial-up modem, but with the convenience of being able to connect from anywhere.

  1. GPRS gives advanced, feature Such they are
  2. Rich data services such as color Internet browsing,

For operators, the adoption of GPRS is a fast and cost-effective strategy that not only supports the real first wave of mobile Internet services, but also represents a big step towards 3GSM (or wideband-CDMA) networks and services.


EDGE is Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) or IMT Single Carrier (IMT-SC) is a digital mobile phone technology that allows increased data transmission rates and improved data transmission reliability. EDGE is generally classified as 2.75G, although it is part of ITU’s 3G definition. EDGE has been introduced into GSM networks around the world since 2003, initially by AT&T in the United States.

EDGE can be used for any Packet Switched application, such as an Internet connection. High-speed data applications such as video services and other multimedia benefit from EGPRS’ increased data capacity. EDGE Circuit Switched is a possible future development.

Now a days, In Our Bangladesh, EDGE facility Given Only GrameenPhone [GP]. Other Operators after few times use this facility. Also Banglalink start & given this facility after a few days.

Disadvantages Of EDGE

Also EDGE gives most favorite wireless Internet facility, but it has some disadvantages ::
  • Data continuous Up & Down in EDGE Internet System,
  • Billing is costly, because more data continuous pass, sometimes more unnecessary rust data bit pass by this EDGE facility, that’s why bill go to Up.
  • Internet Link sometimes disconnected
