Lithuania - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews

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. 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 removes obligations on TEO relating to fixed access market; regulator's market data to June 2013; telcos' financial and operating data to Q3 2013; market developments to October 2013.

Companies covered in this report include:

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