TGS Baltic assists Bitė Lietuva in a dispute initiated by a virtual mobile network operator regarding allegedly incorrect application of the EU roaming legislation and calculation of roaming tariffs. The claimant alleges that it overpaid the roaming charges in the amount of approx. EUR 0.4 million.


After we rejected its initial claim, the opponent made a recourse to the Lithuanian Communications Authority with a request to initiate an investigation into alleged abuse of market power by our client. We are currently defending the client from those allegations.

The dispute regarding the incorrect application of the roaming tariffs is unprecedented in Lithuania. Furthermore, investigations into abuses of market power by the Communications Authority are also very rare. The twofold nature of this matter makes it very unique as our team needs to address and navigate through a number of issues previously unexplored in Lithuanian practice.
