Airtel Ghana customers can now enjoy the internet through flexible and easy-to understand passes.

Opera Web Pass packages mobile internet in affordable, time or content-based plans.

It gives consumers control over their use of mobile internet by moving away from data plans based on mega-byte usage.

This is the first time Ghanaian mobile users have had such freedom of choice in the way that they browse the internet.

With Opera Web Pass, Airtel customers in Ghana have the opportunity to get online for a fixed time or to use Facebook for a day without paying for data that might be used by other applications. This will benefit both new and existing users of Facebook.

Web Pass is based on Opera Mini, one of the most popular mobile web browsers in Ghana. Opera Mini is free and works on phones running on virtually any platform from basic Java phones to the latest Android and iOS smartphones.

Opera Mini uses a unique data compression technology, which shrinks data up to 90% providing users with a faster and eye-opening mobile browsing experience at an affordable price.

To use Opera Web Pass, Airtel customers in Ghana can visit the Speed Dial page on their Opera Mini browser, the default browser on Airtel, click on ‘Web Pass’ and choose the pass that suits their mobile internet needs.

Speaking on the initiative, Jean-Claude Domilongo Bope, Director of Data Business at Airtel Ghana, said data is the future of telecoms and so Airtel Ghana is dedicated to offering its cherished customers an-always-ahead-of-the-game solutions, which is meant to delight them by giving them easier options of accessing the internet.

The Director, Opera Software sub-Saharan Africa, Richard Monday said: ‘Airtel customers in Ghana have, for a long time, used Opera Mini to browse the internet on their devices. We want to ensure that their browsing experience is relevant and accessible. With Opera Web Pass, we’re delighted to continue our partnership with Airtel and progress our work towards bringing the next billion users online.’
