Call for comments on a revised condition that would apply to Canadian carriers that offer services to local VoIP service providers

File number: 8663-C12-201112820

Background

1.        In Telecom Decision 2005-21, the Commission required local voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service providers to provide 9-1-1 service and imposed related obligations on them. In Telecom Decisions 2005-61 and 2007-44, and in Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-426, the Commission amended existing 9-1-1 obligations and imposed additional ones on local VoIP service providers. A complete list of the 9-1-1 obligations applicable to local VoIP service providers is provided in the Appendix to this notice.

2.        The 9-1-1 obligations set out in Telecom Decisions 2005-21, 2005-61, and 2007-44, and Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-426 are imposed on VoIP resellers through a provision that requires Canadian carriers, as a condition of providing telecommunications services to local VoIP service providers, to include in their service contracts or other arrangements with these service providers, the requirement that the latter comply with the 9-1-1 obligations (a “contractual condition”). If a local VoIP service provider is not complying with the 9-1-1 obligations, the Commission can initiate a proceeding to show cause why the Canadian carrier or other telecommunications service provider (TSP) that provides telecommunications services to the local VoIP service provider should not be ordered to cease providing such services.

3.        The Commission considers it necessary to ensure that the 9-1-1 obligations apply to all local VoIP service providers, including resellers that do not have contracts directly with the Canadian carriers (i.e. resellers that obtain service from other resellers). This would ensure that all customers have access to 9-1-1 service regardless of the type of TSP that provides their phone service.

Call for comments

4.        Therefore, the Commission calls for comments on the modifications proposed below.

5.        The Commission proposes to modify the contractual condition set out in paragraphs 53, 69, and 99 of Telecom Decision 2005-21; paragraph 17 of Telecom Decision 2005-61; paragraph 61 of Telecom Decision 2007-44; and paragraph 18 of Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-426 as follows:[1]

The Commission directs all Canadian carriers, as a condition of providing telecommunications services to local VoIP service providers, to include in their service contracts or other arrangements with these service providers, the requirement that the latter, and any or all of their wholesale customers and subordinate wholesale customers, abide by the directions regarding the provision of 9-1-1 service to local VoIP service providers set out in paragraphs 52, 68, 93, 94, and 98 of Telecom Decision 2005-21; paragraph 14 of Telecom Decision 2005-61; paragraph 60 of Telecom Decision 2007-44; and paragraph 17 of Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-426.

6.        If the above modification is adopted, the Commission would implement these revised conditions immediately in all new, amended, and renewed contracts, as well as in other arrangements between Canadian carriers and local VoIP service providers. As a result, to ensure that all local VoIP service providers currently offering service abide by their 9-1-1 obligations, the Commission would require all Canadian carriers to re-open existing contracts and other arrangements with local VoIP service providers, and include the above conditions.

Procedure

7.        The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure SOR/2010-277 (the Rules of Procedure), which came into force on 1 April 2011, apply to this proceeding.[2]

8.        The local exchange carriers listed in Attachment 1 and the resellers listed in Attachment 2 are made parties to this proceeding[3] and may file an intervention with the Commission, by 19 October 2011.

9.        Interested persons who wish to become parties to this proceeding must file an intervention with the Commission regarding the above-noted issue, by 19 October 2011. In accordance with section 26 of the Rules of Procedure, this intervention must explicitly state that the person wishes to be considered an intervener.

10.     All parties may file reply comments with the Commission, by 3 November 2011.

11.     The Commission expects to publish a decision on the issue raised in this notice within four months of the close of record.

12.     The Commission will not formally acknowledge interventions or comments. It will, however, fully consider all submissions, which will form part of the public record of the proceeding.

13.     Parties are reminded that, in accordance with the Rules of Procedure, if a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, not merely sent, by that date. A document must be filed with the Commission by 5 p.m. Vancouver time (8 p.m. Ottawa time) on the date it is due.

14.     Parties may file their submissions electronically or on paper. Submissions longer than five pages should include a summary.

15.     Electronic submissions should be in HTML format. Alternatively, Microsoft Word may be used for text and Microsoft Excel for spreadsheets.

16.     Each paragraph of all submissions should be numbered. In addition, the line ***End of document*** should follow the last paragraph. This will help the Commission verify that the document has not been damaged during electronic transmission.

17.     The Commission encourages interested persons and parties to monitor the record of this proceeding and/or the Commission's website for additional information that they may find useful when preparing their submissions.

Appendix

List of 9-1-1 obligations applicable to local VoIP service providers, based on determinations made in Telecom Decisions 2005-21, 2005-61, and 2007-44, and in Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-426

i.       Provide 9-1-1 service:

Canadian carriers offering fixed local VoIP services, where the end-user is assigned an NPA-NXX native to any of the local exchanges within the region covered by the customer's serving PSAP [public safety answering point], are to provide 9-1-1/E9-1-1 [Enhanced 9-1-1] service, where it is available from the ILEC [incumbent local exchange carrier]. This support is to include provisioning end-user information in the ALI [Automatic Location Information] database associated with the end-user's serving PSAP, and routing 9-1-1 calls, along with ANI [automatic number identification] and ALI data, to the correct PSAP in a manner that is compatible with the PSAP's systems. Call control features are to be supported to the extent technically feasible. (Source: paragraph 52 of Telecom Decision 2005-21)

All Canadian carriers offering local VoIP service are to use 0-ECRS [zero-dialed emergency call routing service] as the interim solution to route fixed/non-native and nomadic VoIP 9-1-1 calls to the PSAPs, pending the development and implementation of a long-term fixed/non-native and nomadic VoIP E9-1-1 solution. (Source: paragraph 60 of Telecom Decision 2007-44)

The Commission directs VSPs [nomadic and fixed/non-native VoIP service providers] to implement the capability to provide their VSP operators with a 9-1-1 caller's telephone number, within 9 months of the date of this decision [i.e. by 14 April 2012], and to require their VSP operators to use the provided telephone number as a last resort to re-establish contact with a 9-1-1 caller, when a 9-1-1 call is disconnected before the caller's location has been determined. (Source: paragraph 17 of Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-426)

ii.     Provide customer notifications:

All Canadian carriers offering local VoIP services are to provide initial customer notification, regarding any limitations that may exist with respect to 9-1-1/E9-1-1 service, before service commencement. This information is to be made available through all of the following: marketing material used for television, radio and printed media, the terms and conditions of service, on-line material, customer service representatives, service contracts and starter kits. (Source: paragraph 93 of Telecom Decision 2005-21)

All Canadian carriers offering local VoIP service are to provide on-going customer notification during service provision through all of the following: marketing material used for television, radio and printed media, the terms and conditions of service, on-line material, customer service representatives, warning stickers affixed to telephone sets and billing inserts. (Source: paragraph 94 of Telecom Decision 2005-21)

In cases where there are limitations on VoIP 9-1-1/E9-1-1 service, Canadian carriers offering local VoIP services are to obtain, prior to commencement of service, the customer's express consent, by which the customer acknowledges his/her understanding of the 9-1-1/E9-1-1 service limitations, using one of the methods approved in Telecom Decision 2005-15. To ensure that information regarding limitations on 9-1-1/E9-1-1 service is accessible to persons with visual disabilities, all customer notification, and any printed information used to secure the express customer consent, must be provided in alternative formats (e.g. Braille and large print), upon request. Furthermore, to ensure that such documentation is accessible to persons with cognitive disabilities, local VoIP service providers are required, at a minimum, to explain it, upon request. (Source: paragraph 98 of Telecom Decision 2005-21)

All Canadian carriers offering local VoIP service are to abide by the customer notification requirements set out in the Report [ESWG Consensus Report ESRE039D – Customer Notification Issues re: 9-1-1 calls on VoIP, 21 July 2005]. (Source: paragraph 14 of Telecom Decision 2005-61)

Canadian carriers offering local VoIP service are to submit copies of their customer notifications concerning the availability, characteristics, and limitations of their 9-1-1/E9-1-1 service for review by the Commission, prior to offering service. (Source: paragraph 16 of Telecom Decision 2005-61)

The proposed texts must adhere to the requirements set out in the Report and in the following paragraphs: (Source: paragraph 15 of Telecom Decision 2005-61)

Where the Report recommends that the information contained in the notifications be “clearly visible,” the Commission clarifies that the text must be easily legible. Local VoIP service providers are to avoid the unnecessary use of upper case letters, and avoid narrow spacing, and anything that may impede the readability of the text.

The font size of the text of notifications used for television, print, and on-line media should be, at a minimum, the same as the main text in the marketing material. With respect to the text contained in items such as, but not limited to, terms and conditions of service, website materials, service contracts, starter kits, installation software and billing inserts, the Commission determines that local VoIP service providers must use 12 point font, at a minimum.

In addition to ensuring that the language for customer notification in both audio and print marketing materials is simple and user-friendly, local VoIP service providers must ensure that their message is succinct. Moreover, with respect to audio notifications used for television and radio, the message must be easily audible. (Source: paragraphs 11 to 13 of Telecom Decision 2005-61)

iii.   Register with the Commission (although this is not strictly a 9-1-1 obligation, it is a requirement for providing local VoIP service):

Accordingly, the Commission directs that all local VoIP service providers that are not operating as Canadian carriers are to register with the Commission as resellers, as a condition of obtaining services from a Canadian carrier or other TSP. (Source: paragraph 204 of Telecom Decision 2005-28)
