Lithuania wins 5G frequency dispute against Russia

The decision was made by the disputes committee of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

The Lithuanian communications regulator Rysiu Reguliavimo Tarnyba (RRT) says it has won a dispute centred on the use of spectrum in the border region of the country.

The case was first brought up in the ITU in 2019 when the body registered frequencies to the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR). In 2021, Russia challenged the frequencies registered to Lithuania, stating it needed Lithuanian civilian airwaves for military use.

“We have received the highest protection status for our frequencies, and our negotiating position in further disputes or negotiations with our neighbours has become stronger,” says RRT council member Darius Kuliesius. “We aim to ensure a new generation, fast and high-quality communication and efficient use of state radio resources in the border areas.”
