Back by popular demand! Enjoy up to 3GB of free data per month with Opera and MTN in South Africa!

Hey readers!

Opera and MTN just relaunched their famous free browsing campaign. Now MTN customers using Opera Mini or Opera Browser on Android in South Africa can use up to 100MB of free browsing every day.

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

We are partnering with MTN to provide our users in South Africa with up to 3GB of free data every month and continue bringing people online. MTN Group is a multinational telecommunications company with a footprint in dozens of countries in Africa and the Middle East.

To start your free browsing, make sure that you are a MTN customer and that you have the latest version of Opera Mini or Opera Browser on Android installed on your phone. Once you are ready, just open Opera Mini or Opera Browser for Android and start browsing for free. 

The free 100MB of mobile data applies to browsing and any website you visit. 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 and Opera Browser on Android, 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 check sports updates and the latest entertainment news. 

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 100MB the next day as well. 

Surf the web safely and securely with built-in VPN and ad-blocker in Opera Browser on Android

For more than 25 years, we have been a trusted industry leader in providing the best online experience with enhanced privacy and security. 

Opera Browser on Android offers its users a Free VPN service. It is a built-in, unlimited and easy to use solution that protects users when browsing through Opera. When active, the VPN hides your physical location, making it more difficult to track online behavior. The Free VPN is a no-log service, which means that the VPN servers do not log or retain any activity data, further protecting user privacy. Moreover, Opera Browser on Android provides users with ad-blocker and online tracking protection. Browsing for free with all these features is now available thanks to 100MB of free data per day with Opera and MTN.
