Telecom Order CRTC 99-643


Ottawa, 13 July 1999


On 19 April 1999, MetroNet Communications Group Inc. (MetroNet) filed an application 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 6


1. In Order 99-302, the Commission directed the Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) to (1) file proposed interim tariff revisions consistent with the Bell Canada 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. MetroNet agreed with Call-Net Enterprises Inc. that the definition of Interexchange Carrier as amended by Order 99-302 would exclude the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) and noted that it was not proposing to change this definition in its General Tariff. The Commission considers that MetroNet’s proposal is acceptable.


3. MetroNet’s proposed tariff includes a definition of Overseas Access Circuit. The Commission notes that this definition is no longer required.


4. The Commission notes that the tariff provisions related to contribution charges on Overseas Circuits and Canada-U.S. Circuits refer to "the Company", defined to mean MetroNet, when they 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) delete the definition of Overseas Access Circuits; and


(b) replace every occurrence of "the Company" by "the ILEC" in Items 304.2 and 304.3.


2. MetroNet is to issue forthwith revised tariff pages.
