Lithuania's mobile market is served by Omnitel, Bité and Tele2, as well as by a small number of MVNOs. In addition, the state-owned broadcaster Telecentras has become the fourth mobile operator, with an extensive infrastructure using spectrum formerly assigned to its WiMAX offering and since migrated to an LTE-A platform.

SIM card penetration is high for the region, and while the prepaid sector accounts for the majority of subscribers the proportion of postpaid services is increasing. With dwindling new subscriber acquisition opportunities, mobile operators are heavily marketing mobile broadband services, made possible from past investments in 3G and HSPA networks and ongoing upgrades with LTE technology. By mid-2016 services based on LTE networks were available to more than 95% of the population.

As was the case with the mobile voice market, competition is driving down prices for mobile broadband plans, and accelerating customer take-up of mobile broadband services. The acquisition by TEO of the remaining shares in Omnitel, completed in January 2016, has also provided the company with a secure presence in the market for convergent services and bundled offerings.

The auction of spectrum in a range of bands in January 2016 will also enable the three MNOs to improve on mobile broadband capacity.

This report provides an overview of the Lithuania's highly-developed mobile market, covering the major operators, regulatory developments, mobile technologies, and services on offer.

Key developments:

Telecentras to increase LTE bases stations to 1,100 by end-2016; regulator auctions 900MHz and 1800MHz spectrum, licences to be held to 2032; Tele2 launches tri-band carrier aggregation technology to provide data at up to 330Mb/s; Mid Europa Partners sells Bité Lithuania; Telecentras contracts Huawei to upgrade its mobile network with LTE-A; TEO completes takeover of Omnitel; TeliaSonera partners with Ericsson to develop 5G services by 2018; Omnitel expands LTE network; spectrum auctioned in the 2.6GHz band and 800MHz bands; report update includes the regulator's market data to March 2016, telcos' financial and operating data to Q2 2016, recent market developments.
