  18. 18. Mobile Internet Jumping the Gap<br />It has often been assumed that the mobile internet will be the sole access method for many in Africa. The results of the study show that for well over 50% this is the case.<br />In contrast only 20% of UK mobile internet browsers never or infrequently (once a month or less) use the desktop internet.<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal, UK<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325 + UK=1203<br />
  19. 19. African Mobile Internet Users are Early Adopters<br />Most mobile internet users in Africa are aged between 13 and 34 (91%) and male (83%), the typical early adopter profile.<br />Many are in school or university, showing the need for a level of education.<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325<br />
  20. 20. Nokia Dominates Mobile Browsing in Africa<br />15% of respondents owned a smartphone. <br />Nearly all smartphones were Nokia Symbian devices with almost no advanced smartphones, e.g. Android and iOS. (iPhones 0.3%).<br />
  21. 21. Downloading Content and Social Networking Leads Mobile Browsing Behaviour<br />Over 50% of mobile browsers go to sites for downloading games and music.<br />Communication services such as social networking and email popular.<br />Almost half search, which for some is the entry point to the Internet.<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325<br />
  22. 22. Compared to the UK, AfricanMobile Browsers Are Less Active<br />With 60% of mobile browsers in the UK owning a smartphone it is unsurprising that they are doing a larger variety of activities than those in the 7 African countries.<br />More emphasis is placed on e-mail and social networking with almost two thirds of mobile browsers accessing it via their mobile phones<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal<br />Date: October 2010 - N= 7325<br />UK Source: comScore - August 2010<br />
  23. 23. Methodology<br />State of Mobile Internet<br />Opera Comparisons<br />Satisfaction and the Word of Mouth Effect<br />Agenda<br />
  24. 24. Opera Providing Smartphone Like Experience<br />Opera browsers do more on the mobile internet, increasing penetration in most categories. They are 12% more likely to browse on a daily basis.<br />They move from consuming media to interacting with media, using services such as email, social networking and search.<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325<br />
  25. 25. Opera Providing Smartphone Like Experience<br />Opera users are 33% more likely to use social networks than Non-Opera browsers.<br />In the UK, smartphone owners are 20% more likely to use social networking than those who don’t own a smartphone.<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal, UK<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325 + UK=1203<br />
  26. 26. Opera Users More Likely to Browse for Mobile Content<br />Opera browsers are 37% more likely to go to sites to download music.<br />16% more likely to browse for Games.<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325<br />
  27. 27. 50% of Opera Browsers Purchase Music via Mobile<br />Opera browsers are 35% more likely to purchase music via their mobile device than those who don’t use opera.<br />29% more likely to purchase games.<br />+35%<br />+29%<br />+4%<br />+15%<br />Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal<br />Date: October 2010<br />N= 7325<br />
  28. 28. Methodology<br />State of Mobile Internet<br />Opera Comparisons<br />Satisfaction and the Word of Mouth Effect<br />Agenda<br />
  29. 29. Gaining Word of Mouth Momentum Key for Mobile Internet Growth<br />The UK mobile internet market took 2 years to recover from poor word of mouth, caused by poor experience and high charges.<br />Mobile Internet growth is dependent on consumers finding it so compelling that they tell their friends and family about it.<br />
  30. 30. Gaining Word of Mouth Momentum Key for Mobile Internet Growth<br />In some countries, those who don’t use Opera have a minus score.<br />This means that those who don’t use Opera are more likely to say negative things about the mobile internet than positive, potentially stifling growth.<br />
  31. 31. The Link Between Device and Operator Satisfaction<br />There is a correlation between operator and device satisfaction of 0.65. <br />There is a link between a consumer opinion of their device and their mobile operator<br />
  32. 32. The Link Between Device and Operator Satisfaction<br />There is a correlation between operator and device satisfaction of 0.65. <br />There is a link between a consumer opinion of their device and their mobile operator<br />
  33. 33. Non-Opera Browsers More Likely to Stop Using Operator<br />We asked mobile internet users-“How likely are you to stop using your current mobile operator?”<br />Opera browsers are 8% less likely to state they are want to stop using an operator than those who don’t use Opera.<br />-8%<br />-31%<br />
