Web company Opera Software has teamed up with Russian Internet company Yandex and Turkish wireless carrier Avea to give away 100,000 weeks of free Internet.

For Internet users interested, they simply need to be an Avea subscriber, launch Opera Mini, and click on the "web pass" option in Speed Dial. Opera Web Pass gives wireless users without a data plan the opportunity to access the Internet and other Web-based products using a time-metric system instead of megabytes/gigabytes.

"This offering, 100,000 weeks of free Internet to Avea's users, is a pretty exciting way to show what Opera's new web pass technology can offer to operators and adviters," said Jan Standal, Opera Software VP for Product Partnerships, in a statement. "With Opera Web Pass, the relevant ad is associated directly with something very positive - free Internet access. The reach of consumers on Opera Mini is large, about 250 million consumers use Opera Mini every month, and Opera Software works with more than 130 operators on various projects around the world."

This is a unique offering to current Avea subscribers, and gives them a bonus if they snag their possible prize quickly.
