Opera confirms Mobile Web Use Soaring

Opera reported today that page views and data consumption along with sheer user numbers are all increasing at a rapid pace.

In a statement Opera said Mobile Web use is soaring on a global basis, In October 2010, Opera Mini had over 76.3 million users, a 7.1% increase from September 2010 and more than 92% compared to October 2009."  Also, "Since September, page views have gone up 12.6%.  Since October 2009, page views have increased 142%."

Opera said, "In October 2010, Opera Mini users generated over 616 million MB of data for operators worldwide.  Since September, the data consumed went up by 15.1%.  Data in Opera Mini is compressed up to 90%.  If this data were uncompressed, Opera Mini users would have viewed over 5.7 petabytes of data in October.  Since October 2009, data traffic is up 134%."

So it looks like quite a rush is underway, with young people leading the charge.  Opera found most 18-to-27-year-old Opera Mini users use their mobile phones to access the Web more often than a desktop or laptop PC.
