The Lithuanian incumbent telco TEO LT is to start offering internet access at speeds of up to 200 Mbps from this month.
According to the TeliaSonera-backed company, the 200 Mbps service Mega FTTH will come as part of the Zebra internet plan and is the fastest in the country.
Residential users of the fibre-optic Zebra service will generally see a doubling of their access speeds, the Basic FTTH package now offering 20 Mbps, Optimum FTTH 80 Mbps and Premium FTTH 100 Mbps.
Moderate users are meanwhile now being offered a new plan named Para (“24 hours”), which for LTL9.9 (€2.87) gives access to the internet for five days each month, with each additional day costing LTL2. For these customers, the Zebra access speeds has been raised to 10 Mbps, while the DSL one is 1 Mbps.
Significantly, according to FTTH Council Europe, Lithuania is implementing new generation fibre optic technologies faster than any other country in Europe, with TEO LT’s FTTH network already available to a third of the population.
In Vilnius and Klaipeda alone, it will be available to around 95% of people by the end of this year.
