MTS users can directly download Opera Mini Browser by browsing through “MY MTS Zone” on their handsets. The access path being MY MTS – Mobile Shop – Opera Mini Browser. Please note that Opera Mini Browser can be downloaded based on handset compatibility.
“MTS is committed to provide a world-class voice and data experience to all its customers. Our latest agreement with Opera Software further strengthens this resolve. The move to provide the facility of downloading Opera Mini software on a range of mobile handsets is bound to significantly enhance the browsing experience of customers on the MTS network,” said Leonid Musatov, Chief Marketing Officer, SSTL.
“With around a 350 percent increase in the unique-user growth over the past year and it being home to the third-largest number of Opera Mini users globally, India has proven to be one of our fastest growing markets. Additionally, we already partner with MTS in other countries such as Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. It was a natural progression for us to extend our relationship into emerging markets such as India,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software.
