A week ago we were reporting that Opera Software, the Norwegian software developer behind the popular Opera browser, is celebrating Opera Turbo’s first anniversary. To mark one year since Opera Turbo’s been out there providing faster browsing speeds to users stuck on a slow connection, Opera Software released a few usage statistics. The following usage statistics:

- Opera Turbo users browsed 25.8 billion compressed pages in total in the past year.
- Opera Turbo served more than 1697 terabytes of compressed data in the past year.
- Opera Turbo has compressed data equal to the printed collection of the U.S. Library of Congress 191 times over, or 319 times the entire contents of Wikipedia.


- There are 50 million monthly Opera desktop users. 1 in 10 use Opera Turbo where dealing with a slow internet connection.
- This August more than 5.2 million users employed Opera Turbo.
- The top countries where Opera Turbo is used are: Russian Federation, Ukraine, India, Germany, Indonesia, Poland, China, United States, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Brazil, Italy, United Kingdom, Turkey, France, Czech Republic, Iran, Slovakia, Romania and Spain.
