Telecom riser ducts are reserved for exclusive use by Public Telecommunication Licensees (PTLs) and Telecommunication Service Licensees (TSLs), referred to as FBOs, who provide fixed services to buildings. Any party seeking to use the riser ducts who is not a licensed PTL or TSL must first seek permission from IMDA to ensure compliance with regulations governing the use of telecommunications infrastructure in Singapore.
