Re: Application by TELUS seeking permission to phase in the permissive dialing announcement over a period of six days
The Commission received, on 3 April 2001, an application dated 3 April 2001 from TELUS Corporation in which it requests that the Commission permit it to introduce the permissive dialing announcement in NPA 604 over a period of six days. TELUS indicates that a phased-in approach would ease congestion and overload on the network.
Given that the permissive dialing period is currently scheduled to begin in May, and in light of the fact that the Commission has initiated a process on an application by Mr. Baxter which also relates to the 604 area code relief project, an abbreviated process will be put in place to consider TELUS' request at the same time as Mr. Baxter's application.
Parties may, by 23 April 2001, file comments in response to TELUS' application, serving a copy thereof on TELUS. TELUS may file a reply by 30 April 2001, serving a copy on all parties who filed submissions. All such materials must be received on the
To assist the Commission in its deliberation of this matter, parties should include, among other things, a discussion of the following issues in their comments:
What is the consumer impact, if any, of granting TELUS permission to phase in the permissive period over six days;
What is the financial impact, if any, of granting TELUS permission to phase in the permissive period over six days; and
What is the technical impact, if any, of granting TELUS permission to phase in the permissive period over six days.
