Telecom Order CRTC 99-642


Ottawa, 13 July 1999


On 8 April 1999, GT Group Telecom Services Corp. (Group Telecom) filed an application under Tariff Notice (TN) 5, amended by TN 5A dated 19 April 1999, for interim approval of tariff revisions related to the implementation of a per-minute regime for contribution on international traffic pursuant to Telecom Order CRTC 99-302, 31 March 1999 (Order 99-302).


File No.: Tariff Notice 5


1. In Order 99-302, the Commission directed the Competitive Local Exchange Carriers to (1) file proposed interim tariff revisions consistent with the Bell Canada (Bell) tariffs granted interim approval in the Order, specifying an effective date of 1 April 1999, or (2) show cause why such tariffs should not be put in place.


2. Group Telecom proposed to keep the existing definition of an Interexchange Carrier in its General Tariff, which differs slightly from the definition approved for Bell. The Commission considers that Group Telecom’s proposal is acceptable.


3. The Commission notes that the definition for a Stentor Operating company no longer applies and should be removed.


4. The Commission also notes that Group Telecom’s proposed tariff refers to the term "the Company", defined to mean Group Telecom, when it should refer to "the ILEC".


5. In light of the above, the Commission orders that:


1. The proposed tariff revisions are granted interim approval, effective 1 April 1999, with the following modifications:


(a) replace every occurrence of "the Company" by "the ILEC" in Items 202.3 c) and 202.3 d); and


(b) delete the definition for a Stentor Operating company.


2. Group Telecom is to issue forthwith revised tariff pages.
