19 Apr 2016

Bite Lithuania, the country’s third largest mobile network operator by subscribers, has revealed that its 4G LTE network is now available to 90% of the population, twelve months after the service was launched on a commercial basis. The latest towns and cities to gain network coverage include Naujoji Akmene, Pasvalys, Pabrade, Sirvintos, Silale, Skuodas, Raseiniai, Kelme and Ignalina, while 4G services have been enhanced in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys, as well as along the country’s main highways.

TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database states that Bite’s LTE/LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) network was launched in mid-April 2015, with initial coverage of five major cities – Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys – as well as the seaside resorts of Palanga and Nida. By the end of that year, Bite had expanded its 4G footprint to 75% of Lithuanians.
