Search Inside

Lithuania’s mobile market is served by Telia Lithuania, 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 being 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 higher-ARPU postpaid subscribers 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 early 2017 services based on LTE networks were available to more than 97% 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 merger of the fixed-line operator TEO with Omnitel in February 2017 saw both business units being rebranded as Telia Lithuania.

The auction of spectrum in a range of bands in 2016 has also enabled the 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.
