Airtel and Tigo who has now come together to form one family as AirtelTigo has come out with a new free browsing initiation with Opera Mini which will enable their customers to surf the internet free with the Opera Mini browsed as well as the Opera News App for three months.
This offer does not include video streaming or downloading. Both new and old customers will be given free 500MB everyday to access the mobile web browser and their news app.
The Chief Business Officer at Airteltigo, Ethel Anamoo in a speech said, “We are excited to bring this powerful browsing platform to our customers and we are confident that this partnership will be instrumental in helping us bring more Ghanaians online.”
Jordan Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera also added his voice by saying, “It’s essential to lower the barriers for access to information in these unprecedented times.Our browser and news apps are important access points for people to stay on top of both local and global news and together with AirtelTigo we will make browsing and access to information free for millions of Ghanaians.”
This is arguably a good initiation by Airtetigo and Opera Mini as it will enable people to also be updated with the latest news trending and I think if they partners with YouTube or at least add some little data to surf videos for some time margin, it will also help since some information requires video to be understood properly.
Also, their network speed should be worked on to provide speed service for their customers whiles using this offer to surf the internet so they will also feel satisfied with the initiation on board.
What do you also think ? Is this a good initiation by the mobile company and the mobile web browser, If so what else do you think should have been added to make it more satisfying?
