Join 40 million Africans who enjoy free browsing with Opera Mini

We believe that access to the internet should be a universal right, therefore in 2020 we partnered up with ten leading telecommunication carriers in Sub-Saharan Africa. These partnerships consisted in offering free data every day to those who use Opera Mini as their personal browser on their mobile phones. Together with our telco partners, we brought online nearly 40 million people across 5 African countries including Ghana! This is something we are very happy about and inspires us to bring more people online 🙂.
