Cell phone carriers in Lithuania

There are four main prepaid SIM card providers in Lithuania, each the offshoot of a larger network. You can purchase a local SIM card in Lithuania for around EUR1.70 (AU$2.24). A 30-day data package with 10GB preloaded costs around EUR11.49.

The prepaid SIM card brands are:

  • Extra
  • Ežys
  • Pildyk
  • Labas

There are two other options available that might suit your needs if you’re looking for data only on your trip to Lithuania. One is Merzon, which is a mobile Internet provider. The second is Widerfi which uses local breakout (LBO) technology when accessing data.

About Extra and Ežys

Extra and Ežys are both owned by GMS network operator Telia. Ežys is designed for the lower-price market while Extra has the more traditional monthly offering. Both cards cost between EUR1.50 and EUR2.00 and can be purchased at Telia retailers, coffee shops, kiosks and at Maxima, Iki and Rimi supermarkets. Most of these locations have top-up vouchers available as well.

Extra Plan Basics

When you get your SIM card, you can activate it by calling 1544. After hearing the activation message, choose Option 9 for English, then choose Option 4 to get the SIM card’s phone number. Depending on whether you will be using your phone for calls and texts or for browsing the Internet during your stay in Lithuania, you can choose one of the Extra basic plans with or without substantial data packages.

Here’s a look at the four basic, Internet-light plans offered by Extra. These plans are all on a monthly basis. Extra has a maximum limit of 400 SMS messages per day.

You can pick up a new Pildyk SIM card for about EUR2 in any Tele2 store or most chain grocery stores.

About Labas

Labas is the prepaid SIM card option from Bitė. It has the weakest 3G penetration of the big providers, but its 4G/LTE network covers more than 90% of the population. You can get the Labas card as either a mini-, micro- or nano-sized SIM. A big negative for this card if you don’t speak the language is that it only has guides, websites, system messages and manuals in Lithuanian. Top-up vouchers cost at least EUR2 and Labas accepts credit cards (Mastercard/Visa) online. Even if you don’t top up your Labas card right away, you have a 3-month grace period where you can only receive calls and SMS messages, but can’t make them. If this grace period runs out without your account being recharged, Labas will close the subscription and block your number.

Labas Plan Basics

Labas has six data feature packages for 3G and 4G/LTE phones that last between a day and a month. Some plans have full upload speed only to a certain bandwidth, then have it throttled down.

About Mezon and Widerfi

Mezon servers about 70% of Lithuania with 4G/LTE technology but is in the process of moving from WiMAX to GSM technology. It no longer offers prepaid options, only non-binding contracts.

Widerfi uses local breakout (LBO) technology to give visitors to Lithuania access to the Internet. LBO allows mobile subscribers to sign up to an alternative roaming provider separate from their home public land mobile network (HPLMN). This allows inbound roamers to receive data services from the visited network instead of tunneling to their HPLMN. Widerfi uses the Bitė network and offers you 3G speed and 200MB of data per day at the following rates:

1 dayEUR5
3 daysEUR8
7 daysEUR12
