Mexican operator offering tailored version of the browser to its 67m subscribers.
It's another nice carrier deal for Opera, which already works with Vodafone, Etisalat, Vimplecom and others in a similar fashion.
Opera’s partnership with Telcel is part of its larger agreement with its parent company America Movil, announced earlier this year.
Existing Opera Mini users on Telcel’s service will automatically be upgraded to the customised versions of Opera Mini.
Opera is driving hard at users in emerging markets, and making the most of the fact that its browser compresses data and therefore reduces fees paid for data when surfing the web from mobile.
It has over 183 million active users.
“We are thrilled to make Opera Mini part of our offerings to our customers, who need a fast and cost-effective solution to browsing the internet on their mobile devices”, said Alejandro Magaña, VAS deputy director, Telcel.
“The best part about Opera Mini is it provides a consistent and smartphone-like user experience across a broad range of handsets, including basic phones, which is very useful to our customer base.”
