Subject : Public Notice CRTC 2001-24: Competition in the local exchange and local payphone markets in the territories of Québec-Téléphone and Télébec ltée


Pursuant to paragraph 16 of Public Notice CRTC 2001-24, please find enclosed a copy of the Commission interrogatories on several topics including the services offered by third parties.

The interrogatory responses must be filed with the Commission, with copies served on all parties, by 11 May 2001.

Services offered by third-parties

In its observations of 23 March 2001, Télébec ltée states that "given the configuration of its network and the fact that it buys certain services (voice relay, CCS7, 911, etc.) from third parties, Télébec will not provide those services directly to CLECs...". Télébec also notes that a number of its remote units are connected to host switches belonging to Bell Canada or Québec-Téléphone (now TELUS Québec Inc.)

Insofar as the implementation of competition in the local and local payphone markets in the territory of Télébec so requires, the third parties providing those services to Télébec (i.e., Bell Canada and TELUS Québec Inc.) could thus be affected by the decision concerning Télébec and resulting from this proceeding.

Consequently, Télébec must immediately serve a copy of this letter to all third-party service providers to which it refers in paragraph 7 of its 23 March comments. A copy of that mailing must also be filed with the Commission.

The third-party service providers are hereby officially notified that the decision resulting from the proceeding launched by PN 2001-24 may apply to them on a mandatory basis, and are thus asked to govern themselves accordingly.
