A web browser has been developed which claims to be able to speed up slow connections used for mobile broadband.

Opera Turbo has come on the market with its server-side optimisation and compression technology, which leads to faster internet surfing on the go.

Aside from the speed boost which the product is said to offer, mobile broadband subscribers will also be using up less of their data allowances as a result of the network compression technology.

Opera's Roberto Mateu explained: "We work hard to make our browser faster with features that speeds you up, but your connection also plays a big role on how fast you can go."

He added: "Opera Turbo will work with any type of connection, but to get the most out of it you should be on a situation with limited bandwidth."

A side effect of the compression technology is that images on web pages could appear in a lower resolution than normal.
