Telecom Order

Ottawa, 2 February 1998
Telecom Order CRTC 98-92
The Commission received an application by Call-Net Enterprises Inc. (Call-Net) dated 18 November 1997, on behalf of Sprint Canada Inc. (Sprint), for an exemption from contribution for four DS-1 cross-border circuits dedicated to its end user, Corel Corporation (Corel) and one DS-1 cross-border circuit dedicated solely to its end user Front Street Tech. Inc. (FSTI).
File No.: 8626-S02-04/97
1. In support of its application, Sprint provided an affidavit from Corel, dated 21 October 1997, affirming that the four DS-1 Canada-U.S. private lines are dedicated solely to Corel's use, and an affidavit from FSTI, dated 13 November 1997, affirming that the one DS-1 Canada-U.S. private line is dedicated solely to FSTI's use.
2. By letter dated 18 December 1997, Bell Canada (Bell) noted that the affidavits provided by Call-Net from the end users affirm that the circuits in question are dedicated to single end customers for their private use. Accordingly, Bell agreed with the requested exemptions.
3. The Commission considers that Sprint's affidavits satisfy the Commission's evidentiary requirements set out in Applications for Contribution Exemptions, Telecom Decision CRTC 93-2, 1 April 1993.
4. The Commission's practice is to normally establish the effective date as the earlier of the date of application or the date of the affidavit, as long as there is no substantive difference between the dates. Accordingly, the Commission is of the view that an approval effective the date of the affidavits would be appropriate in this case.
5. In light of the foregoing, the Commission orders that:
Sprint's application is approved effective the date of the affidavits, 21 October 1997 for Corel's circuits and 13 November 1997 for FSTI's circuit.
