Lithuania - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses
Lithuania's small telecoms market is among the more developed in Europe. A number of alternative operators offer services although the incumbent TEO is still the dominant operator in the fixed-line and broadband sectors. The number of fixed-line voice subscribers is in steady decline, attributed to fixed-to-mobile substitution. The cable and DSL sectors remain vibrant, offering effective competition in urban areas, though the focus among telcos as well as the government has been on investing in fibre networks, with an emphasis on delivering gigabyte data speeds. Fibre now account for the majority of new broadband connections.
