Although Latvia shows high mobile and broadband penetration, it is performing at a significantly lower level than other countries in the Baltic region. The main reasons are that the mobile market has been saturated for quite some time and there are few incentives that may drive operators to look for further innovation in their services. The wireline market is shrinking, with consumers migrating to fibre-optic connections. The incumbent Lattelecom remains the dominant player despite liberalisation, and the government is not pushing enough for market reforms that would enable easier and more cost-effective competition.

DETAILS

Latvia’s broadband market continues to suffer from inadequate progress on local loop unbundling, though the government has stepped up its efforts to build a national fibre broadband network, recently securing funding from the EC. Four GSM/CDMA/WCDMA mobile network operators vie for customers in a competitive market. LTE services have been launched commercially, while the recent auction of 2.6GHz spectrum has enabled this band’s use for LTE. The Internet penetration rate was of 82% by the end of 2014.

TELECOMS MARKET

Until 2003 the incumbent Lattelecom had a monopoly in the fixed telecommunications market. This led to overwhelming use of cellular phones for private customers, fixed lines being requested mostly by companies. In Latvia exist more than 2 million mobile phones. Since the fixed-line voice communication monopoly ended in 2003, several companies entered the market for fixed voice communication services. These voice telephony providers provide services for cheaper foreign calls, as well as local calls. The telecom regulator SPRK tries to provide a competitive environment so that new operators can compete with Lattelecom which owns most of the last-mile connections.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Latvia is a small, open economy with exports contributing nearly a third of GDP. Due to its geographical location, transit services are highly-developed, as well as key industry sectors such as manufacturing of machinery and electronics. Corruption continues to be an impediment to attracting foreign direct investment and Latvia’s low birth rate and decreasing population are major challenges to its long-term economic vitality. Latvia’s economy entered a severe recession in 2008 as a result of an unsustainable current account deficit and large debt exposure amid the softening world economy. The economy has not returned to pre-crisis levels despite strong growth, especially in the export sector. The IMF, EU, and other international donors provided a substantial financial assistance program that successfully concluded by the end of 2011. The majority of companies, banks, and real estate have been privatized, although the state still holds sizable stakes in a few large enterprises. Latvia joined the euro zone in 2014.
