Lithuania cuts MTRs by 19%

24 Jun 2020

Lithuania’s Communications Regulatory Authority (Rysiu Reguliavimo Tarnyba, RRT) has announced the completion of an analysis of the market for wholesale voice call termination service on individual public mobile networks. Following the market study, the regulator has decided to reduce the mobile termination rate (MTR) by 19%, from EUR0.0094 (USD0.010) to EUR0.0076 per minute, from 1 January 2021. The RRT said it hopes the move will increase competition in the mobile services market, by opening up opportunities for new and existing operators to expand their operations, thus giving more choice to consumers.
