This means that you can save more money on mobile data and browse for free as much as you want with Opera Mini, Opera News and Opera News Lite.

Free Browsing with Opera and MTN

The fastest browsing experience 

Opera Mini is a small but powerful mobile browser. It is fully equipped with unique features such as the data compression technology, offline file sharing, and built-in ad blocker.

Opera Mini gives you the fastest browsing experience. The browser is capable of preprocess the information of a website, reducing the amount of data from it, before it reaches your phone. This is all possible thanks to the unique default data compression technology and it’s built-in ad blocker.

To illustrate how much better Opera Mini is at saving data, we tested the twenty most popular websites in Nigeria, measuring the actual data savings per browser under various network conditions. The 2019 data savings test showed that the extreme data compression mode in Opera Mini was capable of saving on average more than 80% of mobile data. Other browsers like Google Chrome can only provide an average of 9% of data savings, functioning only on very slow networks.

Latest news about COVID-19 

With the rapid increases of coronavirus cases  across the African continent, Opera wants to keep you well informed, therefore, we recently added in the Opera Mini speed dial that enables you with quicker access to official information from local government and the ministry of health about COVID-19.

The speed dial is located in the home page of the Opera Mini browser. Once you tap on it, you will be able to get official information about the actual increase of COVID-19 cases in Ghana, recommendations on how to reduce the risk of infection, and the latest governmental statements about lockdowns locally.

Free access to news articles 

As of May 2020, Opera News and Opera News Lite, have become the most downloaded news apps in Ghana according to AppAnnie.

Opera News provides an AI based personalized content stream that serves top news, trendy videos and other daily content from more than forty different categories.
