Telecom Order

Ottawa, 7 August 1998
Telecom Order CRTC 98-770
On 19 August 1997, MTS Netcom Inc. (MTS) (now MTS Communications Inc.) filed Tariff Notice (TN) 287 for approval, proposing revisions to the company's Centrex service tariff that would reduce the minimum line requirement from two lines to one line, and introduce a one-year initial service period contract in addition to the current three and five-year contract periods.
File No.: TN 287
1.On 18 September 1997, AT&T Canada Long Distance Services Company (AT&T Canada LDS) intervened, asking the Commission to deny TN 287. On 10 October 1997, MTS responded to AT&T Canada LDS' allegations.
2.On 7 November 1997, MTS filed TN 287A asking that the Commission grant interim approval to TN 287 at the earliest possible date, pending the final outcome of the Commission's deliberations. The Commission denied TN 287A in Telecom Order CRTC 98-50 dated 27 January 1998.
3.On 21 November 1997, the Commission requested MTS to support the proposed rates in TN 287 with an imputation test.
4.The Commission notes that no further information has been received in this proceeding.
5.The Commission therefore denies the proposed tariff revisions in TN 287.
