Opera Software plans to debut in the upcoming Mobile World Congress event (16-19th February) in Barcelona with its new product called “Opera Turbo”.
This technology will allow network operators to reduce bandwidth consumption as well as increase users browsing experience due to decreased loading times.
How does it work? Opera Turbo compresses data (up to 80%) before sending it to mobile phones, personal computers or any other devices. Just like the way it works with Opera Mini.
According to UberGizmo: “Opera Turbo was 3.5x faster than a browser not using their technique.
Opera will make money by selling Opera Turbo (as a pre-installed browser) to wireless carriers that can’t keep up with increased bandwidth usage. It is much cheaper to by software than to upgrade the infrastructure, so this is an interesting business proposal.”
