February 11, 2002 marks the day Oskar’s customers can benefit from using GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). GPRS is a high-speed data transmission technology offering greater convenience for Internet connection, WAP services and remote access to corporate networks via mobile telephony!

There are several advantages to Oskar’s GPRS> Always On. With GPRS> Always On the customer is always connected to the Internet or WAP thus does not need to dial an access number! Although always connected, customers are only billed for actual data transmitted. This, coupled with the potential for transmission speeds several times greater than those of classic wireless technologies make GPRS> Always On very attractive.

Oskar GPRS> Always On is truly built around the customer. The service was not created in a vacuum; it is actually the first service in the Czech Republic to be “Approved by Customers” prior to launch! A group of 150 Technoids - most technical brains and mobile technology fans - spent three months testing, brainstorming and offering suggestions and inspirational ideas that helped make GPRS> Always On as convenient and reliable as it could be! 

The “OskarGPRS>Approved by people” enters a new and exciting phase on February 11 offering customers the ability to experience GPRS at the highest level of its users’ support. By connecting to www.gprsforum.cz customer can access easy-to-use databases, information, reports, references and tips on GPRS. Registered users and Oskar customers will also be able to ask questions of thirty top Technoids selected from the group mentioned above. GPRS users will benefit from help of experienced community of users, which could assist them in using the technology, setting up notebooks or PDA handhelds or in finding interesting links. 

Furthermore, Oskar is the only operator in the Czech Republic to provide a special toll-free line solely for GPRS technical support.

Oskar has prepared three tariffs, each of which is suited to a different group of users. The Basic price plan will be of interest primarily to those who wish to access the Internet or WAP occasionally and do not want to pay any monthly charge.
