Data Plans, Worldreader

Nigerian Globacom customers are browsing for free every day on their mobile with Opera Mini. Are you one of them?

Hello there! 

Accessing your favorite websites for free is now possible with Opera and Globacom. Starting today all Nigerians who have a Globacom active data sim card and have installed Opera Mini on their mobile devices, can start browsing for free every day for one month. 

With Free Browsing in Opera Mini, you can log in to your Facebook or Instagram account and chat, comment, or react to their favorite photos and publications of friends and family. You can also use Free Browsing in Opera Mini to make Google searches and find the coolest gadgets, plan your next trip, or find an experience you can do with your friends, partner, or family. 

Opera Mini is your personal browser. It is a small but powerful app where you can make searches in private mode, manage your passwords, and reduce online tracking of your data as it comes with an advanced Adblocker. Opera Mini is also your fastest way to access the content that you love while saving you up to 90% of your mobile data. 

Nearly 40 million Africans enjoy Free Browsing with Opera Mini 📲

We believe that access to the internet should be a universal right. Because we believe in online connectivity and rightful access to the internet, in 2020 we partnered up with 10 leading carriers in Sub-Saharan Africa to bring online as many people as we can. 

These partnerships consisted of 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! This is something we are very happy about and inspires us to bring more people online 🙂. 

The fastest and most reliable browsing experience in Nigeria

Fast, secure, and reliable connectivity is fundamental for us at Opera to give you a great browsing experience. Therefore, we installed local data centers in the city of Lagos that speed up your connectivity making it 4x faster when you use Opera Mini vs when you use other mobile browsers available in digital app stores. 

The local data centers in the city of Lagos reduce latency when you are browsing due to their strategic and geographical location which accelerates your browsing speed and makes it more reliable regardless of your location in Nigeria. 

#KeepReading online with Opera Mini 

Opera Mini gives you free access to thousands of ebooks available in the Worldreader library. The Worldreader application has been optimized to support access from feature phones and smartphones with Opera Mini. You can choose from a wide variety of literary genres such as fiction, fantasy, classics, love stories, or inspirational and self-help ebooks. 

The library also offers large collections of ebooks written by Nigerian authors such as Chika Unigwe, Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani, and Buchi Emecheta. 

For more than six years we have been working with Worldreader to promote literacy and online reading. We want people to keep reading everywhere they go without consuming their mobile data. 

Enjoy a fully revamped browser

Less than a year ago we revamped the user interface in the Opera Mini browser, the browser now feels faster, more responsive, and has stunning aesthetics that truly make it stand out from other mobile browsers available in Google Play Store. 

In the newest version of Opera Mini, we introduced new visual styles and themes, as well as streamlined browser interactions so that you can access the features you love faster. On top of all that, we refreshed the browser’s user interface (UI) to give you superior aesthetics while making the browser look better than ever. Hopefully, this will make your browsing sessions even more enjoyable 🙂
