Synopsis

Lithuania’s mobile market is served by Telia Lithuania, Bité and Tele2 and 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 relatively high for the region, and while the prepaid sector accounts for most subscribers the proportion of higher-ARPU postpaid subscribers is increasing. Network operators continue to market mobile broadband services, made possible from investment in LTE technologys. LTE services are available nationally, and although there have been some initial trials of 5G commercial services are not expected to be launched until late 2021. The regulator has consulted on the release of spectrum for 5G in a range of bands, though 700MHz spectrum will not be available until the second half of 2022.

A spectrum refarming exercise has enabled MNOs to have greater continuous spectrum bands to improve data service offerings. Since mid-2018 Telia Lithuania has repurposed some of its 3G spectrum holdings for LTE use.

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.
