GPRS subscription numbers up 47% in Q4 2002
New statistics released by EMC indicate that GPRS subscriptions continue to grow quarter on quarter although still accounting for less than 1% of the world's GSM subscriber base. The data shows an encouraging increase in the number of GPRS users with 47% growth in Q4 2002.

The current figures exclude MMS only users, so that the size of the true GPRS data market can be measured.

GPRS service is available on 147 networks in 58 countries with 6.4 million subscribers, showing a 9% growth in GPRS launches in Q4 vs 19% in Q3 2002.

With the new 3G networks being deployed (UK, Italy, Australia and Japan) public expect more from their mobile devices. Some operators, not wanting to outlay huge amount of money on upgrading current idle network, prefer to enhance the experience with GPRS, a 2.5G technology (Vodafone live! Telecom Xtra Mobile for instance).

O2 (former British Telecom) is conducting a trial of video streaming on their GPRS network and Vodafone put the soccer match Brazil x Portugal to their GPRS users in Europe.
