activated GMPRS on our sat phone

Just upgraded our sat phone to high speed data. I am sending this post at the incredible speed of 60 kilobits per second instead of 9.6 kbit/s. Remember how it was to browse the Internet 10 years ago? Its the same feeling. Just more expensive ;-)
This will cost something like 3 Euros and moreover I have to stand outside at -2 °C in snowfall (while inside the house it is warm and there is a 10Mbps Internet connection).
To keep you up to date we spare neither trouble  nor expense ;-)
