It’s closing time at the all-you-can-eat mobile data buffet. More operators globally are moving away from unlimited data plans and moving towards tiered pricing with hard ceilings on the data available for you to use.

Opera Software today announced its association with UTV Indiagames, an integrated game developer-publisher across mobile, online and the Interactive Television, to offer gaming content on Opera Mini Speed Dial.

Opera Mini is playing a strategic role in driving data penetration to the mass consumer market.
