Lithuania - Digital Economy and Broadband Market - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts
Lithuania has a small but sophisticated broadband market. FttX has overtaken ADSL to become the most popular fixed-broadband access platform, a testament to the country's investment in telecom infrastructure in recent years. ISPs have shifted their focus to internet-based convergence services and bundled offers. Widespread internet usage has also resulted in a fast-emerging internet society, with a range of ICT services improving social and economic development, and with various e-commerce, e-government, e-education and e-health services increasingly available and used.
A burgeoning digital TV market is evident as a consequence of the transition to digital-only broadcasting. The incumbent operator, TEO, is well positioned to develop the sector due to its involvement in both IPTV and digital terrestrial TV.
This report offers a wide range of statistical data on Lithuania's fixed and wireless broadband markets, including forecasts to 2013 and for 2020, as well as an overview of the digital TV sector.

Lithuania - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews
Lithuania's small telecoms market is among the more developed in Eastern Europe. A number of alternative operators offer services although the incumbent TEO is still the dominant operator in the fixed-line and broadband sectors. Fixed-line subscriber numbers are in steady decline, attributed to fixed-to-mobile substitution, although fixed-line broadband services provide an incentive for consumers to retain lines. This forms the focus of TEO's future growth strategy, given that it has no presence in the mobile telephony sector. This report provides an overview of the Lithuania's fixed-line communications sector in 2011. It includes a variety of statistics from the regulator and the main players, as well as an overview of regulatory developments, telecommunications network infrastructure and the incumbent operator TEO.
