Vodafone has introduced GPRS roaming across Europe - a first from a mobile operator, it says.

The service works in 12 countries. Here's the list: Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, The
Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. At present, GPRS roaming in Germany is limited to a few cities, with full nationwide coverage coming on stream at the end of April. As for the rest of Europe, Vodafone is rolling out the service to affiliates with aim for complete coverage by the end of the year.

GPRS is sometimes referred to as 2.5G and can be regarded as a fastish-but intermediate mobile Internet technology, while the network operators get their 3G act together. You pay by according to the amount of data you send and receive, not for the amount of time you spend on the phone. ®
