DiGi to offer Opera Web Pass in Malaysia

Opera Software announced that DiGi will offer the Opera Web Pass in Malaysia.

The Opera Web Pass allows operators, in a flexible and cost-efficient way, to package time- or site-specific data offerings to their users. The browser company says that this makes it even more compelling for subscribers to get online using their mobile phones and in a way that is tailored to their needs.

For mobile subscribers without data plans, this is would be the easiest way to surf the web:

Click: Open Opera Mini.
Pick: Pick a deal.
Surf: Start surfing straight away — no need for additional paperwork or complicated activation routines.

In Malaysia, DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (DiGi) will offer the Opera Web Pass as the product was jointly developed and tested by Opera and DiGi.

“Through regular conversations with DiGi customers to better understand their needs, we are able to create service offerings that tailor to certain market segments. Providing a flexible and cost-efficient way for DiGi customers to access the internet on the move makes good business sense, as there are millions of mobile subscribers in Malaysia who are not looking to be constantly online, but who wish to stay connected at an extremely affordable rate. Opera’s latest product offering meets this growing need, and we are happy to play a pivotal role in jointly developing the product with them,” says Albern Murty, CMO of DiGi.

Opera Software has over 100 operator partners around the world and over 200 million users every month. DiGi has yet to make any announcement on Web Pass yet.
