Opera Mini and MTN launch Free Browsing in Zambia in time for Euro 2020!

Hello Zambia! 

The upcoming Euro 2020 matches are getting us all excited, so here we are to share some great news with you. Opera and MTN are bringing back free browsing for all MTN customers using Opera Mini in Zambia. If you happen to be one of them, get ready to use up to 1.5GB of free browsing every month.

How do I qualify for free browsing and how do I use it?

We are partnering with MTN again to provide our users in Zambia with 50MB of free data every day and continue bringing people online. MTN Zambia is part of the MTN Group, a multinational telecommunications company with a footprint in 22 countries in Africa and the Middle East.

To start your free browsing, make sure that you are a MTN customer and that you have Opera Mini installed on your phone. Once you are ready, just open Opera Mini and start browsing for free. 

The free 50MB of mobile data applies to browsing and any website you visit. Normal data costs will apply to video streaming and file downloads.

Follow your teams with Opera Mini and Free Browsing!

You can follow the results of every match of the 16th UEFA European Championship, which runs from June 11 to July 11, 2021. Use Opera Mini and your 50MB of free data per day to follow your favorite teams, check the highlights of the games, stay updated on the results, and have a great overview of the standings on the league table.  

Get the most out of browsing 

Everyone with a smartphone uses it to browse the web, but it’s disappointing when you run out of data. With Free Browsing in Opera Mini, you can log into your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts to chat, comment, and react to posts on social media. Use your free data to search Google for the latest gadgets and best sales, or to make weekend plans with your friends and family. Remember that using free browsing with Opera Mini and MTN saves you the money you would have spent on mobile data, and you can be sure that you’ll get another free 50MB the next day as well.

If you already have Opera Mini installed on your device, you can go ahead and start browsing for free every day. If you aren’t yet an Opera Mini user, just click here to download the free & popular mobile browser chosen by more than 170 million people

Opera Mini is a small, fast and powerful browser. It comes with unique features such as offline file-sharing, a built-in ad blocker, and superior data compression capabilities that save you up to 90% of your mobile data. People choose Opera Mini for its fast and secure mobile browsing capabilities. 

Enjoy a fully revamped browser

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

In the newest version of Opera Mini, we’ve 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’ve refreshed the browser’s user interface to make your browsing sessions even more enjoyable. 

#KeepReading online with Opera Mini 

Opera Mini gives you free access to thousands of ebooks available in the Worldreader library. The Worldreader app 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, romance, or inspirational and self-help ebooks. 

Join the millions enjoying free browsing in Opera Mini

In 2020 we partnered up with leading carriers like MTN in Zambia and 9 others in Sub-Saharan Africa countries to bring as many people online as we could. These partnerships have allowed us to provide free data every day to those who use Opera Mini as their personal browser on their mobile phones, so they can browse, chat, access news articles, and stay informed about local events. Together with our telco partners, we have brought nearly 40 million people online across Zambia and other African countries! 

Happy browsing!
