MobileCom launches GPRS service
Jordanian mobile communication services company MobileCom recently launched its new GPRS service, a 2.5 generation network bringing convergent voice/data capabilities to mobile phones, accessible from anywhere in the kingdom.
“Our customers will now be able to enjoy high speed data connectivity with 3-4 times the current GSM data speed to make the transfer of information simple, quick and affordable, while opening new channels of communication for business and pleasure,” said Jean-Christophe Caillat, MobileCom CEO.
Customers using GPRS service will be charged by the volume of data which is sent and received, rather than a per minute charge as with voice calls, enabling customers to exchange information and pay for the amount they send and receive only.
Customers will be charged six fils per 10 kilobytes (KB) of data exchanged for GPRS Internet access and fils per 1kb for GPRS WAP access. Prepaid users will be charged 1 fils per 1kb for GPRS WAP access only. MobileCom will offer the service with no connection fee or monthly fee for the four months promotional period.
MobileCom is the Jordanian public mobile telephone network operator, and is the operator of the mobile communications license granted to Jordan Telecom. The company has launched its full public service in Jordan in September 2000. — (menareport.com)
