The growth of Opera Mini users in Nigeria has increased by over 300 percent since November 2009.
This is shown from Opera’s State of the Mobile Web report for November 2010 which ranks Nigeria 8th above the U.S and Brazil.
With this result, Nigeria has surpassed the United States of America in terms of opera mini users.
Below is a snapshot of the report for Nigeria:
Page-view growth since November 2009: 404.1 %
Unique-user growth since November 2009: 315.4 %
Data transfer growth since November 2009: 370.8 %
Page views per user: 438
Data transferred per user (MB): 6
Data transferred per page view (KB): 13
Below is a snapshot of the report for U.S:
Page-view growth since November 2009: 103.1 %
Unique-user growth since November 2009: 28.4 %
Data transfer growth since November 2009: 94.0 %
Page views per user: 422
Data transferred per user (MB): 10
Data transferred per page view (KB): 23
While it is possible that a mobile network hack may have resulted in the increase in Opera Mini usage in Nigeria, I think that Nigeria is a strong contender in the top 10 list.
This is an indication that mobile advertisement would thrive as more and more people turn to mobile web browsing.
Interestingly, Opera has seen huge potentials in Nigeria’s mobile web space and is sponsoring the first Social Innovation Camp in Africa to be held in Lagos, Nigeria come January 2011.
At SICamp, Opera would be providing seed funding to the best social innovation ideas as well mobile apps out of Nigeria.
