This period was characterized by high intake of television and Internet service customers, growing market shares,” said Kęstutis Šliužas, general manager of Teo.

“In September we grew both the total number of Teo customers and the company’s revenue. In addition, revenue from IT services provided to business customers in this quarter for the first time exceeded revenue from voice telephony services provided to business customers. Those are the first significant results of changes in the company.”
