Telenor Myanmar has teamed with Norway-based software company Opera to help customers surf the web more cheaply, the telco announced November 1.
The partnership accompanies Telenor Group’s “internet for all” initiative as well as its mass market-focused strategy in Myanmar. Opera’s browser, Opera Mini, makes web pages up to 90 percent smaller to reduce their data payload and help customers squeeze value from prepaid plans.
Telenor Myanmar CEO Petter Furberg said the firm has prioritised improving the domestic internet experience, which has led to the partnership with Opera.
More than 250 million people globally engage with Opera Mini, which Telenor customers can download at no charge and use to access Facebook Zero and free Wikipedia, according to the telco.
“Opera works with Telenor around the world to provide faster and better Internet access for all and to simplify the way people get access to the web,’’ said Opera Software CEO Lars Boilesen.
