Etisalat and Opera Software are providing an even better mobile web experience to consumers in Nigeria, with Etisalat offering a co-branded Opera Mini browser. The bundles come in two flavors — Sport and Social — available to all of its over 13 million Nigerian customers. Already more than 200 million people around the world use Opera’s mobile browsers each month.
Opera Mini is a highly customizable mobile web browser that is compatible with more than 3,000 different makes of handsets. Operators can build their own user web experience with a co-branded Opera Mini solution, giving consumers a consistent experience, look and feel relevant to their market and operator of choice. Opera Mini reduces the data delivered to any handset by up to 90%. For cost-conscious consumer this means they can access the web more, for the same price.
“Opera Mini is the most loved mobile browser in the world, bringing a rich internet experience to all devices, regardless of phone or operating system,” says Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software. “We believe that access to the internet is a basic human right, and the number of operators we team up with, like Etisalat, means we can really deliver on that conviction. The World Bank recently issued numbers showing that for every mobile subscriber base increase of 10%, a developing country’s GDP grows by 0.8%. We think that’s awesome.”
