Sponsored Web Pass
Build new revenues and brand relationships through sponsored, no-cost internet access
For operators: Sponsored Web Pass helps bring reluctant data consumers onto the internet for the first time. By giving operators tools to team up with brands and advertisers easily to sponsor the cost of their customers' mobile internet access, Sponsored Web Pass brings the unconnected online and builds new revenues for operators in the form of shared ad revenues and new data-plan connections.
For brands: Gain a strong presence in local and emerging markets by providing something beloved by consumers: no-cost internet access. Work with Opera’s 130+ operator partners around the world to promote your services via interstitials, offers and messages to consumers, all while sponsoring internet packages that range from hours to full weeks.
No-cost internet access
Operators and brands can offer sponsored mobile internet access to their entire user bases quickly and easily. These solutions are fully customizable for each local market or region.
Interstitials and other ad units
Users simply view or engage with short advertisements, offers or messages from the sponsor before continuing to their content. Users are then free to surf the internet for the entire duration of the Sponsored Web Pass.
Build new revenues
Sponsored Web Pass lets brands and operators work together to connect the unconnected, as well as helping to establish internet habits that lead to greater data consumption over time – including upgrades to an operator’s own data bundles.
