Early this week, MobileCom announced the launch of its GPRS service in Jordan. The technology will bring convergent voice/data capabilities to mobile phones across 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,” stated Jean-Christophe Caillat, CEO, MobileCom. Charges for the service will be based on the volume of data sent and received. Every 10 kilobytes (KB) of data exchanged will incur a charge of 6 fils. For GPRS WAP access, clients will be charged one fil per kb of data. An auto run CD supplied along with the subscription will also enable clients to configure GPRS on their laptops, PCs or PDAs.
