15 Jan 2015

Tele2 Lithuania has announced in a press release that its 4G LTE network now covers 65% of the country’s territory and over 66% of the population, providing mobile data speeds of between 20Mbp and 100Mbps for LTE handset, tablet and modem users at no additional cost. Tele2 Lithuania added that its 4G network currently consists of more than 200 LTE base stations, using the 800MHz frequency band for wide coverage across urban and rural/highway zones, alongside the 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands to meet coverage and capacity demands in cities. By the end of 2015 the cellco intends to expand the LTE footprint to 75% of Lithuanian territory and 90% of the population. The release also stated that 4G devices now represent around 10% of Tele2’s Lithuanian mobile user base, whilst total data service revenue accounted for 12% of all turnover in Lithuania by the end of 2014, a statistic which is lagging behind its Baltic sister companies, Tele2 Estonia (where data represented 24% of 2014 revenue) and Tele2 Latvia (22%).
