These are based on two main standards in the UK - general packet radio service (GPRS) and high speed circuit switched data service (HSCSD).
With high speed circuit switched data (HSCSD) and general packet radio services (GPRS) E-Plus already offers technologies for faster data transmission and belong to the six service operators that are building up and will use a modern UMTS network.
But that's going to be ancient history soon, thanks to the new generation of mobile technologies, and ahead of the field is Orange, which has already launched the first wave of high-speed mobile transmission, HSCSD. Plugging straight into your modem via the smart-card slot, it comes with an aerial and a dedicated sim card and it whips data down at 28.8kbps, three times faster than standard.
This will include the new Nokia UltraSite - a multimedia-ready base station supporting high speed circuit switched data (HSCSD), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) and Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) services.
This service will see GSMgate offering online sales of SIM chips to mobile users, bundled with pre-paid air time for the emerging HSCSD GSM data service, allowing GSM users to roam across Europe without having to set up separate data accounts with different operators.

The GM28 dual band (850MHz/1900MHz) GSM/GPRS Serial Modem enables sending and receiving of data by GPRS, HSCSD, CSD and SMS as well as handling voice calls.
The Nokia D211 multimode radio card functions in EGSM 900/1800 networks within GPRS, HSCSD and wireless LAN coverage areas, providing a data transmission rate of up to 40.2Kb/s in the GPRS environment and up to 43.2Kb/s and 11Mb/s rates, respectively, in the HSCSD and LAN environments.
