Telecom Order CRTC 99-1154


Ottawa, 14 December 1999


On 15 October 1999, Maritime Tel & Tel Limited (MTT) filed Tariff Notice 766 proposing to introduce 100 Block Routing service to wireless service providers, and further proposing that the rates and charges for 100 Block Routing also be applied to 1000 Block Routing.


File No.: Tariff Notice 766


1. On 1 November 1999, Rogers Cantel Inc. (Cantel) intervened submitting that the company is not aware of any ongoing costs associated with the provision of 100 Block Routing and that therefore the proposed $20.80 monthly rate per block cannot be supported.


2. Cantel further stated that 100 Block Routing is a desirable service and requested that the Commission approve the proposal, without the monthly charge, on an interim basis.


3. MTT filed reply comments on 12 November 1999.


4. The Commission notes that MTT filed a cost study in support of its proposal.


5. Further, the Commission notes that it has approved similar rates for 100 Block Routing, on an interim basis, for Bell Canada in Telecom Order CRTC 99-454.


6. Accordingly, the Commission approves Tariff Notice 766 on an interim basis.
