Internet on mobile phone comes to Karagwe!

Passing Dr. Msalilwa's drug store yesterday evening, i stumbled upon a service i didnt think was available in Karagwe.

We currently can surf the internet on our phone here in Karagwe, if you are on a network like TIGO. Users can surf the Internet via the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) activated on their handsets. Supported handsets are Nokia 6020, Sony Ericsson, Siemens, Motoral & Panasonic. GPRS networks deliver high-speed data services to mobile phones. Users of GPRS can obtain high-speed access to 'WAP' enabled Internet websites.

They are also offering multimedia messaging service (mms), a store & forward messaging service that allows subscribers to exchange multimedia messages with other mobile subscribers. With MMS, you can transmit media types such as text, pictures, audio, video or combinations of the above.
