Lithuanian operators to raise SMS rates

Wednesday 20 January 2016 | 13:12 CET | News
Lithuanian mobile operators Bite Lithuania and Tele2 Lithuania have started blocking A2P (application to person) messages from other networks, reports Vz.lt. Mobile operator Omnitel has also announced plans to block such messages this spring. SMS dispatch rates are among the lowest in Europe in Lithuania. Omnitel charges EUR 0.017 rate per message when buying a bundle of 50,000 texts, while Bite Lithuania and Tele2 Lithuania charge around EUR 0.01 rate per SMS. It is expected that the operators will raise the rates, as SMS prices are double in Latvia and higher several times in Estonia.
