  GPRS - General Packet Radio Service
General Packet Radio Service: A GSM data transmission technique that does not set up a continuous channel from a portable terminal for the transmission and reception of data, but transmits and receives data in packets.
General Packet Radio Services: is a packet-based wireless communication service that promises data rates from 56 up to 114 Kbps and continuous connection to the Internet for mobile phone and computer users.
General Packet Radio Services is an ETSI standard and is the first implementation of a packet switched wireless protocol, is that GPRS only uses the network when data is to be sent.

 General Packet Radio Service GPRS , SGSN, GGSN, Path to UMTS
GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) is a packet data communications system integrated with the GSM cellular telephone system.
GPRS is a packet-based wireless communication service that, promises data rates from 56 up to 114 Kbps and continuous connection to the Internet for mobile phone and computer users GPRS is based on "regular" GSM (with the same modulation) and will complement existing services such circuit-switched cellular phone connections such as SMS or cell broadcast.
In theory, GPRS packet-based service should cost users less than circuit-switched services since communication channels are being used on a shared-use, as-packets-are-needed basis rather than dedicated only to one user at a time.

Packet service lets users maintain extended virtual connections, but only be billed when they actually communicate data.
Theoretically, a user could have all eight time slots in the radio channel, but carriers are likely to limit the number of download slots to four (or fewer), for a maximum of 52Kbits/sec, and the number of slots available for uploads to one, for a maximum of 13Kbits/sec.
EDGE is a new radio interface that employs a combination of new coding schemes, new modulation, and the ability to dynamically choose the best possible combination of coding scheme and modulation, based on instantaneous error rates.

GPRS is defined by 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project) and is employed to connect mobile cellular users to PDN (Public Data Network).
Within the GSM network it shares the network databases and radio access network and employees functions known as the PCU (Packet Control Unit), SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Node) and GGSN (Gateway GPRS Support Node) to provide packet switching data services across the fixed and radio network.
Billing for GPRS services will initially be based on volumes, but as services develop it is likely that URL billing from outside the GPRS network will be employed.

In general, there is a many-to-many relationship between the SGSNs and the GGSNs: A GGSN is the interface to external packet data networks for several SGSNs; an SGSN may route its packets over different GGSNs to reach different packet data networks.
The billing of the service is then based on the transmitted data volume, the type of service, and the chosen QoS profile.
The GGSN decapsulates the packets and sends them out on the IP network, where IP routing mechanisms are used to transfer the packets to the access router of the destination network.
