Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-6

Ottawa, 12 February 2002

CRTC denies TELUS Communications Inc.'s application to merge price cap models

Reference: 8678-C12-12/01


On 16 January 2001, TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI) advised the Commission of its plan of action relating to tariff filings resulting from the legal amalgamation of TELUS Communications Inc. (the former TCI), TELUS Communications (B.C.) Inc. (the former TCBC), and TELUS Mobility Inc.


On 28 June 2001, TCI submitted the former TCI and the former TCBC price cap indices under one merged price cap model.


The existing price cap regime does not contemplate amalgamated price cap indices for the former TCI and the former TCBC.


In the Commission's view, the amalgamation of the individual indices at this time would provide additional pricing flexibility beyond that which is allowed under the current price cap regime.


The Commission notes that the issue of price cap amalgamation is being considered in the price cap review proceeding, Public Notice CRTC 2001-37, Price cap review and related issues, dated 13 March 2001.


In view of the foregoing, the Commission directs TCI to continue to submit company-specific price cap indices.
