Bite Lithuania has launched 5G broadband services for residential customers. The network currently covers the towns and cities of Grigiskes, Lentvaris, Garliava in Kaunas, Jonava, Paryzius, Klaipeda, Palanga, but services will be expanded to other locations, including central Vilnius, Alytus, Utena, Marijampole, Panevezys, Siauliai, Birzai and Silute in 2023. A range of four 5G home broadband tariffs are available, offering speeds of 100Mbps, 300Mbps or 500Mbps, while the top-end plan advertises ‘unlimited speed’. Bite is deploying its network in partnership with Swedish equipment vendor Ericsson.
Bite was awarded spectrum in the 700MHz and 3.5GHz bands by the Communications Regulatory Authority (RRT) last month. The firm secured a block of 100MHz spectrum in the 3400MHz-3500MHz range and 2×5MHz in the 700MHz band for EUR3 million (USD2.9 million) apiece.
