Telecom Order

Ottawa, 11 December 1998
Telecom Order CRTC 98-1246
On 6 October 1998, Maritime Tel & Tel Limited filed Tariff Notice 721 proposing revisions to the company's Centrex Business Service tariff that would restructure the rates for large Centrex service in Rate Band C.
File No.: Tariff Notice 721
1.The company stated that, in response to customer pressure, it is proposing to simplify its large Centrex rate structure in Rate Band C by eliminating the distinctions between multi-wire centre and single-wire centre and between Analog and Digital services. To accomplish this, the company proposed to upgrade all existing large Centrex customers to the multi-wire centre Digital service level but the proposed rates would be those for the existing Analog single-wire centre service.
2.The company acknowledged that in Rate Band C the existing rates for single-wire centre Analog Centrex service are currently below cost.
3.The Commission notes that the proposal represents a rate decrease and that the company did not file an imputation test as required for a proposed rate decrease.
4.The Commission considers that the proposed rates would not pass an imputation test.
5.The Commission therefore denies the proposal outlined in Tariff Notice 721.
