The report explains how these substantial savings were achieved. The credit for this goes to Opera Mini’s advanced compression technology, which shrinks webpages down to as little as 10% of their original size, reducing data consumption by up to 90%. The data compression also helps render webpages faster, even while roaming, or in places with poor network conditions, making Opera Mini a great companion while on the go.

Opera Mini users on Java-based phones saved an average of 81% in mobile data each month, while smartphone users saved about 69%, the report reveals. Among smartphone users, those on Android phones clocked an average of 68.5% savings per month, while iOS users saved about 62%.

The report is based on aggregated information obtained from the Opera Mini servers.

Opera Mini is compatible with over 3000 mobile devices, ranging from basic Java phones to the latest Android and iOS smartphones. This makes it highly popular in the Indian mobile market, which has a healthy mix of consumers using a large variety of handsets. India is also home to the largest number of Opera Mini users in the world.

“We understand how precious mobile data is for Indian consumers, and that’s why our servers work very hard to shrink every bit of data possible for Opera Mini users. It’s indeed gratifying to see that this translates into such gigantic savings for our Indian users. This is, however, only the tip of the iceberg. We are confident Opera Mini can help Indians save billions more”, says Sunil Kamath, Vice President for Southern Asia at Opera Software.

The 2.1 billion rupees that Opera Mini users in India saved over just half the year could be used for various other projects, services and luxuries ,as shown in the below infographics:
