Enjoy the fastest and most reliable browsing experience

We recently installed a local data center in Lagos. What it does is to reduce latency when you are browsing due to its strategic and geographical location. This means that every time that you use Opera Mini or Opera News, you will receive content faster and your connection will be more consistent and reliable. 

You can be certain that when you use Opera Mini and Opera News, you’ll browse 4 times faster than with other browsers or news applications available in digital app stores. 

Save up to 90% of your mobile data while browsing 

Opera Mini and Opera News come with unique data compression technology that on average saves you an impressive 90% of your mobile data. When you enable data savings, you consume less data while enjoying more browsing. Other browsers like Google Chrome can only provide an average of 9% data savings, functioning only on very slow networks.

When you enable data savings in both apps, you also extend your data plan or data bundles. We believe this is great for you as you won’t need to buy data as often.

You can read more about the cost of data and data savings in the 2019 edition of the State of Mobile Web report, where we performed a deep analysis of mobile data costs in Nigeria.
