Lithuania - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Lithuania’s small telecoms market is among the more developed in Eastern Europe. A number of alternative operators offer services although the incumbent TEO is still the dominant operator in the fixed-line and broadband sectors. Fixed-line subscriber numbers are in steady decline, attributed to fixed-to-mobile substitution, although fixed-line broadband services provide an incentive for consumers to retain lines. This forms the focus of TEO’s future growth strategy, given that it has no presence in the mobile telephony sector. This report provides an overview of the Lithuania’s fixed-line communications sector in 2011. It includes a variety of statistics from the regulator and the main players, as well as an overview of regulatory developments, telecommunications network infrastructure and the incumbent operator TEO.

Key developments:

TeliaSonera makes bid for full ownership of TEO; regulator’s market data for 2012; telcos’ financial and operating data to Q1 2013; market developments to May 2013.

Companies covered in this report include:

TEO, CSC Telecom, Telekomunikaciju grupa, Cubio, Eurocom SIP, Nacionalinis telekomunikacij tinklas, Norby Telecom.
