Hiya South Africa!

Opera and CELL C are launching free browsing for prepaid CELL C customers using Opera Mini in South Africa. If you happen to be one of them, get ready to use up to 25MB of free browsing every day.

How do I claim my free data?

We are partnering with CELL C to provide our users in South Africa with 25MB of free data every day and continue bringing people online. 

To start your free browsing, make sure that you are a prepaid CELL C customer and that you have Opera Mini installed on your phone. To enable free data, the user should open the Feedback Bot in Hype Messenger, send “Unlock my free data” to the chat and click the link in the reply message. Your free data for the day will be activated when the page is loaded.

Keep in mind that the free 25MB of mobile data applies to any website you visit. Free daily data covers browsing only, while normal data costs will apply to video streaming and file downloads.

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 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. 

Euro 2020 is right around the corner. With Opera Mini, you can follow the results of every match in the 16th UEFA European Championship, which runs from June 11 to July 11, 2021. Use your 25MB 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.

Remember that using free browsing with Opera Mini and CELL C saves you the money you would have spent on mobile data, and you can be sure that you’ll get another free 25MB the next day as well. 

Boost free data with data saving in Opera Mini

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. This means that your 25MB of free data will last almost 10x longer!

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 10 leading carriers in South Africa and other 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 Sub-Saharan Africa countries! 

Happy browsing!
