Oslo, Norway - December 27, 2012

Opera Software and Beeline Tajikistan announced today that Beeline subscribers will be first in Tajikistan to get unlimited access to the mobile web with the Opera Mini mobile browser. All subscribers using Opera Mini on their phones or tablets will now be able to enjoy smooth, unlimited browsing for the lowest price in Tajikistan.

Starting today, an unlimited, mobile web package called Operativnyj Internet will be offered for only 10,29 Tajikistani somoni per month, or 4,11 somoni per week. With these special bundles, almost one million Beeline subscribers will get seamless access to the web, regardless of the mobile device they use. Viewing, downloading and sharing multimedia files will not be covered by the service fee and will be charged at regular rates. Other restrictions may also apply.

Opera Mini, used by over 195 million people around the world, is the most popular mobile browser in Central Asia, and Tajikistan in particular. In the last year, the number of Opera Mini users in Tajikistan has increased 210%, while the number of webpages viewed has increased 719%. Smooth and fast browsing, cool features and a great experience with no data limits make Opera Mini for Beeline subscribers the smartest web solution in Tajikistan.

"Our cooperation with Opera Software is tailored to bring Beeline subscribers unlimited surfing possibilities, no matter if they use a smartphone or regular phone," says Andrey Grunin, Head of Product Development, Beeline Tajikistan. "With this new, simple and highly cost-efficient service, users in Tajikistan are now able to enrich their browsing habits without worrying about device or financial limits."

"We"ve seen a huge growth in Tajikistan in the number of webpages viewed by Opera Mini users recently. Not only do more people turn to the mobile web today, but they also surf much more regularly on their mobile phones," says Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. "With Beeline Tajikistan, we are now able to address this trend, by giving people a way to surf at a bargain price."

To start browsing, download Opera Mini from directly onto your mobile phone and activate that service using a USSD code. For a 30-day period simply type "*555*30#". To try out a 7-day period, type "*555*7#".
