Telenor and Opera Software have announced their partnership to bring more cost effective mobile internet experience for their customers in Myanmar. The partnership enables Telenor Myanmar's customers to access faster and more affordable internet from their mobile devices via the Opera Mini browser, where they can access the local relevant content, free Wikipedia and Facebook Zero with just one click. All Telenor subscribers can now download the Opera Mini browser for free from both m.opera.com and Telenor’s mobile portal.

Opera Mini is available on almost any mobile phone platforms, including Android, BlackBerry, Java ME, iOS, Symbian OS and Windows Mobile, among others. The partnership also enables people who download Telenor’s version of the Opera Mini browser on their phones to access relevant local content and offers via Opera Mini’s shortcut screen, the Speed Dial. 

Petter Furberg, CEO of Telenor Myanmar
It is important for us to provide a high quality and affordable mobile internet experience to our customers in Myanmar. Partnering with Opera and ensuring that our customers get more from their mobile internet experience is just another example of how Telenor works to ensure that the internet is for all and not just the few.

Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software
Opera works with Telenor around the world to provide faster and better internet access for all and to simplify the way people get access to the web. Together, we provide a high-quality mobile internet experience, which the people of Myanmar can now afford on their own terms.
