Telenor Joins Hands with Opera to Promote Mobile Internet

The Telenor Group and Opera Software announce a non-exclusive Global Frame Agreement aiming to stimulate rapid growth of mobile Internet services across Telenor’s business units.

Telenor’s business units can co-brand, distribute and run the Opera Mini mobile browser across its mobile handset and subscriber portfolios. As a result, Telenor’s customers in all geographies will be able to enjoy a fast, affordable and user-friendly mobile web experience on their favourite handset.

Under the agreement, Opera Software and any of Telenor Group’s business units may develop a co-branded version of Opera Mini that is adapted to the local operator.

Opera Mini is the world’s most popular mobile phone browser with 60 million monthly users.

As part of the Global Frame Agreement, Opera and Telenor will also work to further innovate and expand the scope of the mobile web.

The first deployment of Opera Mini in the Telenor network is scheduled for September.
