Re: Clarification regarding the Terminal Equipment definition set out in Order CRTC 2000-221

This letter is to provide clarification following an informal request to Commission staff for an interpretation of the Terminal Equipment definition set out in Order CRTC 2000-221 for the purpose of the revenue-based contribution regime.

Commission staff clarifies that the approved definition applies only to terminal equipment located at a customer premises. For further clarification, revenues generated from the sale or rental of terminal equipment on the telecommunication service providers' premises are contribution-eligible.

The above interpretation is consistent with the intent of Paragraph 91b) of Decision CRTC 2000-745, Changes to the contribution regime.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you require further information.

Yours sincerely,

Scott Hutton
