Telecentras launches LTE in two major cities

3 May 2016

Lithuanian Radio and Television Centre (also known as Telecentras), which provides telecoms services under the MEZON brand name, has expanded its recently launched 4G LTE network to Kaunas and Siauliai, two of the country’s largest cities. In September last year the state-owned company revealed that it had contracted Chinese equipment vendor Huawei to migrate its existing WiMAX networks to a new LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) platform, which was switched on in Klaipeda, Taurage, Telsiai, Utena, Alytus and Anyksciai two months later, followed by the capital Vilnius at the start of this year. Telecentras has begun to transfer its customers in the upgraded coverage areas to the new network, which will be expanded to other cities in due course. By the end of 2016 the firm plans to have 1,100 LTE base transceiver stations (BTS) in operation across the country.
