GPRS

(General Packet Radio Service) The first data service for GSM cellular carriers. GPRS added a packet capability to GSM, which uses dedicated, circuit-switched channels for voice conversations.

GPRS works on GPRS cellphones as well as laptops and portable devices that have GPRS modems. Users have typically experienced downstream data rates up to 80 Kbps. GPRS is not the same as GSM's short messaging service (GSM-SMS), which is limited to messages of 160 bytes in length. GPRS was superseded by EDGE, which changed the modulation method to increase speed. See cellular generations, Wi-Fi vs. cellular, EDGE and GSM.

A common measure of reach and frequency, called gross rating points (GRPs), is misleading when used with bookend ads, Steele says, since it gives the same rating for two 15-second ads as it does for a single 30-second--even though the shorter ads are broadcast twice as often as a 30-second ad.
