Lithuanian mobile operator Tele2 has announced that it has completed testing its fibre-optic internet service and is starting its commercial phase in the parts of the capital Vilnius. The network will start operating in Zirmunai at the beginning of May, but residents have already been invited to place pre-orders for the fibre-optic internet service. The network will initially cover around 7,000 homes in the district. Tele2 announced in September last year that it planned to enter the fixed broadband market and would use the existing cable infrastructure in the country to provide its services.
‘The pilot project for fibre-optic internet has helped to better understand the needs of the users of this service. After half a year of preparation, we can offer our customers high-quality fibre-optic internet at an attractive price,’ commented Petras Masiulis, CEO of Tele2 for Lithuania and the Baltic States.
