Does having a GPRS modem speed up sms transmission or not ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPRS
"GPRS can be used as the bearer of SMS. If SMS over GPRS is used, an SMS transmission speed of about 30 SMS messages per minute may be achieved. This is much faster than using the ordinary SMS over GSM, whose SMS transmission speed is about 6 to 10 SMS messages per minute"

http://www.mobiledatanow.com/support/supported-sms-modems
"These modems will send/receive around 10 messages a minute."
( But both modems presented, TC65T and M1306B, support GPRS, why only 10 SMSs per minute ? )

So, does having a GPRS modem speed up sms transmission or not ?
Or is there extra time required to activate GPRS and therefore GPRS does not speed up SMS transmission if GPRS is activated on per SMS basis,
and wikipedia like numbers can only be achieved when using continually connected GPRS modem ?
