With Opera Mini, users can enjoy access to the Internet while on the go, and can easily enter favorite sites and MTN portals from their mobile phones. Using Opera Mini, MTN subscribers will benefit from one-click access to a series of websites that include: google, Facebook, Yahoo! and Mobile Store.
The wireless carrier has a number of around three million subscribers, and offers wireless connectivity for over 98 percent of the country’s population. Through Opera Mini, MTN users can benefit from important savings courtesy of the compression technology that Opera has packed the mobile browser with.
The application compresses web pages by up to 90 percent before sending them to the mobile phone, which means less data consumption for mobile phone users, as well as savings for wireless carriers.
The mobile browser is compatible with a number of over 3,000 mobile phone models on the market, and can offer fast Internet on basic phones.
