Communications Regulatory Authority of the Republic of Lithuania (RRT) calls upon the providers of electronic communications services in Lithuania to follow the Recommendations announced by RRT Regarding uninterrupted provision of electronic communications services during the quarantine period.
“At this difficult moment of quarantine, resulting from the COVID-19, the electronic communications services are of vital importance to all consumers, providing possibilities for communication, working, education, entertainment, and calling for help as needed”, director of RRT, Mr. Feliksas Dobrovolskis says. “We encourage and call for socially responsible and mindful attitude of all providers of electronic communications services operating in Lithuania, therefore we provide guidelines with recommendations for dealing with issues relevant in the current context, such as payment for services, changing of service plans, portability of telephone numbers and services, maintenance operations”.
