"At Opera, we work towards connecting the world, and we believe that the web is for everyone. We trust that this partnership with Idea Cellular will help us to reach out to first-time users who have not been exposed to the web," Opera vice president (South Asia) Sunil Kamath said.
Idea Web Pass will entice more users to get online and serve as a catalyst to boost mobile Internet usage, he added.
"Idea has consistently focused on growing data penetration across the country, we understand that a lot of Idea users choose to access a few preferred sites rather than buying full data plans," Idea Cellular Chief Marketing Officer Sashi Shankar said.
This partnership will help us to reach out to those users and provide them with a convenient data-plan option, he added.
"We believe that more and more Internet users accessing web via mobile phones will usher in a new wave of mobile-data growth in the country," Shankar said.
