The fast-growing market for mobile Internet access in South Africa is set to pick up further speed as MTN and Opera Software have joined forces to introduce a special, co-branded version of Opera Mini, the world’s most popular mobile web browser. As a result of this initiative, MTN subscribers can now enjoy a faster and more affordable web experience through one-click access to MTN’s Play entertainment portal, as well easier access to any other website.
The introduction of the co-branded version of Opera Mini marks a key step in MTN South Africa’s small-screen strategy of enabling an enhanced internet user experience on mobile phones. By offering faster internet access to any website, as well as easy entry to MTN’s own portal,Â www.mtnplay.co.za for any Java-enabled mobile phone, which encompasses the vast majority of mobile phones in use, MTN subscribers will now be empowered to consume the content they want, faster and more affordably. With one click, users can access music, news, games and information on MTN products and services via their MyMTN page on the MTN Play portal.
