Banglalink brings better mobile web browsing with Opera Mini

Opera Software today announced its partnership with Bangladesh’s second largest cellular operator – Banglalink for delivering a special co-branded mobile web browser to its more than 29 million subscribers.

The special co-branded Opera Mini mobile browser will enable Banglalink subscribers to access a rich, fast and data-efficient mobile browser ideally suited for low-cost mobile phones. The special co-branded Opera Mini browser will make it easier for Banglalink voice subscribers to try, activate and regularly use internet services on their handsets. Customers can customize their browsing experience and access favorite internet services such as Facebook or Google search with one click, directly from their home page. Customers will also be able to access the Banglalink online web portal for one-click internet-access purchases directly from Opera Mini's Speed Dial page.

With this customized version, users will gain access to the football website http://wcc.sports.opera.com/ absolutely free. And, to make the season even more exciting, Opera has also launched a contest offering some of the latest smartphones as prizes to Banglalink users.

Opera Mini is the most popular mobile browser in Bangladesh. It works on mobile handsets of almost all operating systems, ranging from basic phones to the newest smartphones. It features advanced compression technology, which compresses internet usage by up to 90%, resulting in huge cost savings for users. This compression also leads to much faster page-loading times, even in bad network conditions, saving users valuable time. 

Commenting on the same, Marketing Director of Banglalink Solaiman Alam says, “We have always endeavored to offer a rich and pleasant experience to our consumers. We are thrilled to bring Opera’s world-class technology to our consumers, which will provide a fast and powerful web experience.”

He further adds, “Bangladesh is in a complete football frenzy right now, so we are happy to offer this special edition of Opera Mini, which will further add to the delight of our users. Opera Mini offers a flexible platform that allows us to customize offers and services based on user interest.”

Sunil Kamath, Vice President for South Asia at Opera Software, says, “At Opera, we are always seeking opportunities to bring the internet closer to people across the globe. Bangladesh is a key market for us, and we are happy to expand our presence in the country through this partnership. We know how much Bangladeshi love football and want to help them make the most of this football season. They will now be able to enjoy their favorite sport online, without worrying about internet costs or the mobile device they are using.”

Banglalink subscribers can simply type “Opera” in an SMS message and send it to 9090 to get the Opera Mini download link via an SMS reply. No SMS charges will be applicable. Alternatively, they can visit m.opera.com to download this customized version of Opera Mini.

Banglalink subscribers will also have the opportunity to win smartphones by participating in the football quiz hosted on http://wcc.sports.opera.com/. This page can also be accessed directly from the Opera Mini Speed Dial.
