Lithuanian mobile operator Omnitel has revealed that coverage of its LTE network has been expanded to around 99% of the population, with 300 new 4G base transceiver stations (BTS) installed across the country since the start of the year. The TeliaSonera-owned company launched commercial LTE services in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys in April 2011. Since then, the network has been steadily expanded on a nationwide basis through the deployment of over 1,000 4G BTS across the country. Omnitel extended 4G services to smartphone users in March 2014 and in December the cellco began offering LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) services to customers in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys, supporting maximum download speeds of up to 330Mbps.
