AIS Social Pack offers unlimited web browsing with Opera Mini

Bangkok, Thailand, and Oslo, Norway - February 26, 2014

To make access to the mobile web more affordable, Thai mobile operator AIS has introduced the AIS Social Pack, offering unlimited web browsing through the Opera Mini mobile browser, for as low as 9 THB per day. This data plan also provides weekly and monthly subscriptions at 49 THB and 149 THB, respectively.

Opera's mobile browsers, especially Opera Mini, are reducing barriers around the world to help people get online. By compressing the size of webpages to as little as 10% of their original size, Opera Mini makes surfing the web faster and more affordable than other mobile browsers. In addition to saving time and money, the co-branded AIS-Opera Mini browser provides easy access to the web on more than 3,000 mobile phones. Access to a user's favorite web content is just one click away on Opera Mini's Speed Dial shortcut page. Subscribers can customize their Speed Dial entries and get quick access to an unlimited number of their favorite sites.

"We want to give our customers the best value offerings on the highest quality network in the mobile communications market," says Mr. Pairoj Waiwanijchakij, Vice President of Value Added Services at AIS. "Opera Mini has consistently provided a speedy and affordable mobile browsing experience, fueling growth. Launching the AIS Social Pack with unlimited web browsing on Opera Mini is the best way to bring more people online in Thailand."

"Mobile web is the key to connecting most people in Thailand to the internet, and Opera works with its partners to drive this trend," says Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software. "We are passionate about breaking down barriers, so everyone can share in the power of the internet. AIS shares the same values as Opera, making the web easier and more affordable for everyone. The AIS Social Pack, with unlimited internet browsing on Opera Mini, will encourage more people in Thailand to participate in, discover and share ideas through the web."
