Lithuania - Fixed Broadband, Digital Economy and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses

Lithuania has one of the highest broadband penetration rates in Europe, while its focus on fibre networks has provided the country with one of the most mature fibre markets in the region. The country has the third highest fibre-broadband penetration in Europe. Regulatory measures have ensured that there is effective competition to the incumbent telco Telia Lithuania. ISPs have focussed in IP-delivered services and bundled offers. Widespread internet usage has also resulted in a fast-emerging internet society, with a range of ICT services improving social and economic development, and with various e-commerce, e-government, e-education and e-health services increasingly available and used.

A burgeoning digital TV market is evident as a consequence of the transition to digital-only broadcasting. Telia Lithuania is well positioned to develop the sector due to the company's involvement in both IPTV and digital terrestrial TV.
