Omnitel 4G reaches 50% of Lithuanians

9 Jun 2014

Omnitel, Lithuania’s largest mobile operator by subscribers, has announced that its 4G LTE network now covers 50% of the population. The TeliaSonera-owned company launched commercial LTE mobile broadband services in the downtown areas of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys in April 2011, notes TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database. Since then, the network has been expanded to around 50 of the country’s largest towns and cities, including Palanga, Nida, Svencionys, Moletu, Jonava, Sirvintos, Silale, Kryzioku, Jurbarke, Taurageje, Sakiuose, Alytus, Birstonas, Druskininkai, Varena, Marijampole, Simnas, Kalvarija, Lazdijai, Salcininkai and Pilviskiuose. Most recently, LTE services were brought to new areas in the north west last month, including Skuode, Sedoje, Joniskyje, Zagareje, Akmeneje, Naujojoje Akmeneje and Ventoje, while 4G coverage was also expanded in Vilnius, Nemencine and Elektrenuose.
