WELCOME TO THE TCI TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION
We are responsible for regulating the telecom operators in Turks & Caicos Islands making sure that we have effective and fair competition that will benefit consumers. We also ensure that rates, conditions and quality of the services provided to consumers are reasonable, bearing in mind that the operators are private businesses with a right to a fair profit on their investments. We are also responsible for managing the radio waves and the use of the radio spectrum by the cellular operators, radio and television stations, private radio systems used by businesses and industry etc., making sure that the users do not interfere with the radio frequencies assigned to others.
