What's Opera Web Pass?
Opera Web Pass is an emerging market-focused service aimed at making mobile Internet packages more crystal clear for mobile phone owners and inexperienced Web users. Web Pass lets ‘pay-as-you-go' customer get the internet on their device through highly customisable packages. As of now, around 35 million web-pass packages have been purchased by users across 19 operators, since its launch in 2013.
"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," according to Opera.
