Fiber ready scheme for Enterprise

Fibre-Ready Scheme (FRS) is a scheme which is applicable to non-residential buildings. The Scheme provides for a government subsidy of up to 80% of the cost of new in-building infrastructure such as

  • Access panels
  • Cable trays/trunkings
  • Air blown ducts, racks and accessories

The subsidy under the FRS is capped at $200,000 per building for building owners and managers to facilitate access to fibre services for non-residential subscribers.

This funding will go towards helping buildings to put in place additional in-building facilities and infrastructure to bring fibre broadband to their business tenants.

Operators remain responsible for installation and maintenance of fibre cables.

iDA Grant valid for only 3 years


Because the Grant by iDA is only valid for 3 years and it is mandatory under COPIF 2013 to provide infrastructure for fibre from MDF to riser / tenant units thereafter.

Why is it important to be Fibre-Ready?

To put in place additional in-building facilities and infrastructure to bring “fibre broadband” to your business tenants.

  • Elimination of fire hazards
  • No usage of scissor lifts, boom lifts and scaffolding
  • Access panels need not be opened repeatedly
  • Broadband provisioning enabled to all your tenants
  • Lucid documentation for easy maintenance
  • Environmental Impact minimised
  • Faster subscription to any broadband provider
  • Ready-to-go infrastructure in place
  • Safety ensured by elimination of risk factors
