24 Jun 2015

Bite Lithuania, the country’s third largest mobile operator by subscribers, is aiming to expand coverage of its 4G network to 75% of the population by the end of the year, rising to 90% of Lithuanians in Q1 2016. The cellco’s LTE/LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) services have attracted around 42,000 customers since the network was launched in mid-April. 4G services were initially available in five major cities – Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys – as well as the seaside resorts of Palanga and Nida, but Bite says it will soon expand the network to more than 30 other major towns and cities, including Alytus, Marijampole, Utena, Ukmerge, Kedainiai and Druskininkai. The company claims that the LTE-A network (branded ‘4G+’) supports maximum download speeds of 300Mbps, with average speeds of 80Mbps.
