Opera Software has announced a new service, called Opera Web Pass, which brings pay as you go model for the Opera Mini users. The new Opera Web Pass offers option to the consumers to choose the packages which are basically combination of accessible websites, limited browsing or unlimited access for a day or more. For instance, you can choose to access Facebook or Google+ for a day or use any website for a day. So eventually consumers get to purchase pre-paid data access for stipulated time.
Opera has incorporated its proprietary Data Compression technology that compresses data of any web page and then pushes mobile screen friendly version to the user’s phone. With the new Opera Web Pass, the mobile operators will be able to offer Pay-As-You-Go packages to the consumers.
This indeed is very useful and cost effective service. For instance, the Opera Web Pass service brings pre-paid web access to select websites or all websites for a stipulated period of time. This time can be defined by day, week, fortnight or month – whatever mobile operator decides to offer.
Millions of mobile phone users need not access all webs services and especially the youth who wish to stay connected with their friends. In that case, the Opera Web Pass can be used to offer customised package that allows accessing only select websites.
As of now, there are no details on by when the Opera Web Pass will be made available for Indian consumers.
