Look for Bite to launch its HSDPA semi-commercially around the Ides of September. Then, or maybe at the commercial launch, look for them to build out their network outside of Riga. Bite, it seems, is buying UMTS base stations just for this purpose. This will get it a jump ahead of Latvian Mobile Telephone (LMT), which got the jump on Bite by launching its HSPDA last week. Wonder when Tele2 will make a move? Have they taken over the role of the dozing giant from LMT? Triatel is also going to juice up its version of EV DO and get more megabits ( currently 1 Mbps) over the radio. It also hints that it has a good slice of places outside Riga covered. Looks like soon you will just have to stick out an antenna and look for the best and fastest wireless internet deal in the neighborhood.
Oh, and Dizzy IZZI has done a mirror-image of Lattelecom. They are giving away cable internet (well, the barely broadband cheapo XS version) if you take their digital cable TV service. It is the same thing as Lattelecom giving away nation-wide free telephony IF you subscribe to their DSL internet service. Things are getting merrier all the time.
