The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) recently launched its online portal for common tower registration in response to digitalizing the application procedures for Independent Tower Companies (ITC) interested in establishing or operating common towers.
ITCs engaged in the business of setting up and operating one or more Shared Passive Telecommunications Tower Infrastructures (PTTI) are now required to register on the Common Tower website. Applicants must fill out the application form and attach the required documents at the ITC Registration Page online.
The development of an online portal for common tower registration is provided under the Policy Guidelines on the Co-Location and Sharing of Passive Telecommunications Tower Infrastructure for Macro Cell Sites (DC No. 008 s. 2020) and Interim Guidelines for the Processing of Applications for Registration as an Independent Tower Company for the Duration of the Declared State of Public Health Emergency due to COVID-19 (DC No. 011, s. 2020).
