Telia Lietuva installs 250 Ericsson base stations, ready for 5G launch

15 Oct 2021

Telia Lietuva has revealed that it has installed more than 250 new generation base stations from Swedish equipment vendor Ericsson since the start of the summer. The stations support 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G technologies, and the company plans to replace about 2,000 of its base stations in the next two years. Telia says it plans to start providing 5G services immediately after obtaining the required frequencies at the country’s upcoming spectrum auction. Telia, which has been carrying out tests of 5G in Lithuania since 2018, says the Communications Regulatory Authority (RRT) will announce an auction for 700MHz spectrum in the next few weeks.

‘The coronavirus pandemic has revealed that quality of communications network is as important as never before. Moreover, we will not be able to help the country develop without a good connection. I am confident that the joint efforts of network operators and public institutions will help make Lithuania a better country to live and work. In two years, we will prove to Europe that Lithuania is capable of taking a leader’s position in the development of the 5G technology. This is the obligation Telia Lietuva assumed to fulfil and we know how to do that,’ stated Dan Stromberg, CEO of Telia Lietuva.
