Opera Mini browser customized for SingTel Prepaid mobile customers offers faster and cheaper web browsing

March 30, 2012

Oslo, Norway and Singapore - March 30, 2012

To help mobile internet users in Singapore browse the web with speed and ease, Opera Software, leading browser developer, today announced that it has worked with SingTel to further optimize the Opera Mini web browser for SingTel Mobile prepaid customers. This special version is now available for download at m.opera.com or by dialing "*360" directly through the SingTel network. Starting from March 31 to June 30, all SingTel prepaid mobile customers who download this SingTel-Opera Mini browser are eligible for weekly lucky draw and a chance to win up to $23,000 cash in all.

Opera Mini is known for bringing a fast and money-saving web experience to more than 160 million people every month worldwide. By compressing webpages by up to 90%, it consumes only a tenth of the bandwidth of other browsers. In addition, instant access to your favorite sites with Speed Dial, multitasking with tabs, and the ability to sync bookmarks, notes and passwords between your computer and mobile devices with Opera Link, are some of the advantages that help users browse the web on mobile devices more efficiently. Users can even select language* and customize the Opera Mini speed dial to point directly to their personal favorite sites. The SingTel-Opera Mini browser not only inherits all the same great features of the public version, but also integrates the Speed Dial shortcuts for popular websites such as Gmail, Facebook, Weibo, detik.com and more.

"SingTel is the first operator-branded Opera Mini browser in Singapore. It is a significant step for both SingTel and Opera," said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. "By making the mobile internet cheaper, faster and better, SingTel and Opera together will make the web more available and easier to access for more people in Singapore."

In conjunction with the launch of the SingTel-Opera Mini browser, there will be a cash reward raffle campaign every week from March 31 to June 30.

A total of 13 winners are able to grab weekly prizes of $1,000, and one winner will be awarded a grand prize of $10,000. You get more changes to win, depending on how you get and share the SingTel-Opera Mini browser. Simply downloading SingTel-Opera Mini automatically gives you two chances to win, and you get one chance each time you share it on social media and one chance each time you tell a friend by submitting their mobile numbers. The more you share with friends, the more chances you will get to win.
