Opera Unveils 'Sponsored Web Pass' for Advertisers Sponsored FREE Mobile Data

Opera Software


Opera Software has unveiled Sponsored Web Pass to enable operators to easily team up with advertisers to sponsor the cost of customers' mobile internet access, providing users with free mobile data. This enables customers to enjoy  time- or content-based mobile internet sponsored passes by advertises.

Similar to traditional TV program viewing, time based passes or application specific passes would require customers to watch a short advertisement from the sponsor before continuing to their content. When the Sponsored Web Pass expires, users are given a soft landing with the option to continue browsing after purchasing a paid Web Pass, or to re-engage with different sponsors and continue browsing at no charge.

Sponsored Web Pass now allows operators to increase their revenues from data services by enabling their participation in ad revenue monetization, said Opera


Sponsored Web Pass gives operators a unique channel to partner with the advertisers and content providers who are already driving traffic across their networks, and helps both parties to participate in monetization of that traffic,” said Nuno Sitima, SVP of Business Development at Opera Software. “This is an excellent way for operators to bring new users onto the mobile internet while introducing them to new, easy-to-understand data packages.”
