At MyRepublic, we understand how important it is for our customers to stay connected in this digital age.
We want to shed light on the Telecommunication Facility Co-ordination Committee (TFCC) and how it plays a crucial role in ensuring a smooth experience for homeowners and developers. In this article, we will explain what TFCC is and what you should do if you encounter any delays in your telecommunication orders.
What is TFCC?
TFCC, short for Telecommunication Facility Co-ordination Committee, is an organization that oversees the coordination and implementation of telecommunication facilities in development. Its primary goal is to ensure seamless communication services for homeowners and developers during construction, renovation, or redevelopment projects.
TFCC's Role and Requirements:
When a developer or owner plans to demolish or redevelop a completed development, TFCC comes into play. It is crucial to submit certain information to TFCC at least 6 months in advance of the demolition or redevelopment works. This enables TFCC to effectively coordinate the necessary telecommunication facilities and services.
Moreover, TFCC requires that the relevant space and facilities be ready three months prior to the date of the Temporary Occupation Permit issuance. This timeline ensures that homeowners can enjoy uninterrupted telecommunication services as soon as they move into their new homes.
As a homeowner or developer, it is important to take the following steps to ensure a smooth telecommunication experience:
- Apply for TFCC through CoreNet: If you are planning to commence demolition or redevelopment works for landed houses, make sure to apply for TFCC through CoreNet at least six months in advance. This allows TFCC to coordinate the necessary telecommunication arrangements in a timely manner.
- Handover Completed Gate Pillar/Meter Compartment: To facilitate the installation and connection of telecommunication facilities, hand over the completed gate pillar or meter compartment to NetLink Trust (NLT) at least three months before the Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) issuance. This timeframe provides NLT with the necessary allowance to complete the required work.
