Opera Software today announced that Swisscom, Switzerland's leading telecoms provider, has selected the Opera Mini browser to deliver a 'better' Web experience to its mobile phone customers. Opera Mini will be available for download over the air (OTA) on most Swisscom-operated phones in the near future.
With Opera Mini, Swisscom customers can take advantage of the full Web on their mobile phones. Opera Mini's compression technology is said to mean that the content that users are viewing will be delivered faster and more cost efficiently by reducing the amount of data transferred to the phone.
"We are the leaders in providing the Internet to Switzerland. We are proud of our advanced HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) network that currently covers 90 percent of the Swiss population," says Thomas Hüter, Head of Internet Experience, Swisscom. "We wanted the most feature-rich and fast browser available that will work on all the Swisscom mobile phones on the market today. Opera Mini has proven its value to millions of users all over the world, and we want to offer our customers a great mobile browsing experience."
