Telenor Smart network enables you a simple and quick access to Internet with up to five times quicker surfing. Telenor Internet services are available on the whole territory of Serbia covered by Telenor Smart network (coverage map ). Live the best possible experience with a device of your choice.
Parameters for adjusting access to Telenor Internet are:
Telenor users that have been using the GPRS service for some time can also use this service when in roaming. Bilateral GPRS agreements have been signed with a number of foreign mobile operators, and new international partners are being added to this list almost on a daily basis.
The GPRS Roaming service is available to all postpaid subscribers on the Telenor network that meet roaming conditions, on networks with which Telenor has signed GPRS roaming agreements.
GPRS Roaming fully allows for the use of PC Internet applications even outside the subscribers network, starting with e-mail and chat, Internet searching and use of FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to Internet sales. POS (Point of Sale) services, for verifying credit and payment cards, can also be used thanks to the speed and security of data-transfer, as well as database searching, field sales and use of banking applications. GPRS can also be used for telemetry, distribution systems (such as supply), dispatch services (police, taxi), etc.
All the networks with which we have signed GPRS roaming agreements also allow for the use of MMS services, but the exchange of MMS messages is possible only between Telenor subscribers, regardless of whether they are on their home network or on a network with which we have a GPRS agreement. An exception are Montenegrin networksT-Mobile and Telenor (Promonte) with which sending and receiving MMS messages functions the same way as it does with subscribers to the Telenornetwork. Subscribers that are in roaming will be charged for sending and receiving MMS messages in accordance with the GPRS tariffs.
What is GPRS?
GPRS is the abbreviation for General Packet Radio Service. This is a new technology that is intended for transferring data within the existing GSM network. GPRS allows users access to the public Internet network, as well as to other networks based on the IP protocol. In short, GPRS is a new way of transferring data over mobile handsets. In addition to the Internet, GPRS provides access to standards WAP contents over mobile handsets, but faster and easier that before.
Who can use GPRS?
GPRS is available to all postpaid and prepaid subscribers to Telenor’s network that have a handset that supports GPRS.
What does charging according to transferred data mean?
This meant that you can be connected to the WAP or Web for as long as you want, and you will be charged only for the data that you transferred, and not the surfing time.
The average size of certain documents is:
How is it used?
A subscriber that has a mobile handset that supports GPRS can connect to the Internet with one simple click on his/her handset, i.e. access Internet sites adapted to mobile handset technology, so-called WAP. Full Internet access over GPRS requires a notebook computer and mobile handset that supports GPRS. The handset and computer can be linked by cable, infrared port (IrDA) or Bluetooth. The GPRS handset can be replaced by GPRS modems in PC card format, which the SIM card is inserted into. There are also external GPRS modems that connect to the computer over the USB port, and can therefore be connected to desktop computers.
What will happen when I want to answer an incoming call while data is being transferred over the GPRS?
The subscriber can answer the call and resume the data transfer upon completion of the conversation.
Is it necessary to have a notebook in order to use the advantages of GPRS?
No, you can use a GPRS handset in order to surf WAP pages. GPRS handsets can be used to connect a desktop computer to the Internet. GPRS can also be used to synchronize databases, check bank accounts, and use e-mail.
How can I activate this service?
With activation of the number, GPRS is automaticaly activated.
Where all can GPRS be used?
Throughout the territory covered by Telenor’s network.
What affects the quality of this service?
Handset characteristics affect transfer speed. The network allows for transfers of up to 53.6 Kbps, but not all handset models can achieve this speed. Speed is also affected by the position of the user relative to the base station. In zones where the network signal is weaker the subscriber has fewer channels available and therefore the transfer rate will be somewhat lower.
What mobile handsets support GPRS?
All newer handset models support GPRS. The list of most commonly used handsets is available on the configuration page.
How do additional GMS services function with GPRS (e.g. SMS and WAP)?
SMS can be sent using GPRS or GSM. The user chooses on his/her handset whether SMS will be sent over GPRS or GSM. Charges remain as they were until now, which means that the subscriber is charged the same as for GSM. Using WAP is much faster over GPRS: surfing speed (opening WAP pages) is much faster, in addition to the shorter access time. Charging according to data transfer is also a great advantage.
What are the parameters of Telenor’s GPRS network?
APN = internet
Username = telenor
Password = gprs
What is the data-transfer speed over GPRS?
The maximum data-transfer speed is 53.6 Kbps. This is almost the same speed that is achieved when connecting to the Internet over a telephone network landline (like on a desktop computer).
Is the subscriber unavailable for incoming calls while logged on to the Internet?
No. The advantage of GPRS is that the voice channel is always free, therefore it cannot happen that the user will miss a phone call while logged on to the Internet. It is simple to switch from a phone call to GPRS, and vice versa.
Is it possible to securely connect to a corporate LAN over GPRS?
It is possible to access a private company internet network. Such access technically requires for a connection to be established between Telenor’s GPRS network and the company intranet (leasing a line or VPN through the public Internet network). This connection is established through a special APN that has been assigned to the company and only company employees that are subscribed to GPRS and this APN can access the company’s intranet.
