ITRealms


The Chief Executive Officer, Payporte.com, the online shopping portal giant, Eyo Bassey Francis, has disclosed the company’s partnership with Operamini, the world famous browser service provider, to offer free internet to Nigerians, ITRealms reports.


Francis said this while briefing the media on the Payporte latest business strategy launch which was designed to bring as many Nigerians as possible to explore the internet and as a result motivate them to patronize the company’s online shopping business, adding that with 83 million Nigerians on Net the company is optimistic that the partnership will be profitable.


The partnership with Operamini in conjunction with Airtel Network, the renown telecom company, he stated, is based on Opera’s affirmed ability to compress data to the tune of 90 per cent which he believes would act as vehicle to pilot this business strategy, saying that Operamini would allow 100,000 web passes every month till the end of 2015. He went further to say that there is possibility of renewal if the free launch was not abused, not just by Nigerians, but by the telcos, Payporte or by Operamini. ITRealms gathered that apart from the amount for the project being huge, it is being  paid for by Payporte.


“It is on record that Payporte online transaction rate remains  at N165 per dollar despite the rise in dollar rate;  the free internet which is only possible on the bill of Payporte, will not lead to a rise in price of its online services, ” Francis disclosed.  


The partnership which is meant to stimulate the online market, ITRealms learnt, is also for brand equity even as  other networks like MTN, Etisalat and Glo as telecom partners will join next week all to ensure that no internet user was disenfranchised.


“MTN, Etisalat and Glo as telecom partners will join next week all to ensure that no internet user was disenfranchised. All you need to enjoy the free internet service is to have a good browser phone and you are on, currently Payporte is in Ghana, Kenya and South Africa” he said.


The Business Development Manager, Operamini Sales, Sub-Sahara Africa, Murray Spark, at the event which held, Tuesday, at WheatBaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos, thanking Payporte for the partnership, said Operamini is reputed to offer about 70 per cent of the world browser service and being able to compress data to the tune of 90 per cent the success of the partnership is a possibility. He said Operamini is providing the platform to achieve the dream of the sponsors of the free internet service.


He stated that all you need to get through is by just using operamini and typing Webpass.com and it gives you unlimited access to the internet even though one is encouraged to visit Payporte site for online shopping activitie, ITRealms reports.


“It is an internet experience in conjunction with the telcos. We provide the platform, and with 22,000,000 million Operamini customers in Nigeria that is the platform the sponsorship gets. We have strong marketing team and our market dominance is real as a top browser data compressor company. You can get through by using opearawepass.com,” Spark added.
