Telecom Order CRTC 2003-102

Ottawa, 7 March 2003

Microcell Telecommunications Inc.

Reference: Tariff Notices 5 and 5A

Competitive local exchange carriers model tariff


The Commission received an application by Microcell Telecommunications Inc., filed on behalf of Microcell Connexions Inc. (Microcell), dated 4 November 2002 and amended on 31 January 2003, for approval of its proposed General Tariff setting out the rates, terms and conditions for the provision of interconnection services to other telecommunications service providers, pursuant to Model tariff for the interconnection services of competitive local exchange carriers, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-54, 3 September 2002.


The Commission notes that, pursuant to Local Competition, Telecom Decision CRTC 97-8, 1 May 1997, competitive local exchange carriers must file proposed tariffs providing for interconnection with other providers of telecommunications services that are equivalent to the terms and conditions contained in the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) tariffs, justifying any departure therefrom.


The Commission notes that in Interim rates for Access Tandem service and Direct Connection service, Telecom Order CRTC 2002-384, 24 September 2002 (Order 2002-384), and in Revised interim rates for Access Tandem service, Telecom Order CRTC 2002-412, 31 October 2002 (Order 2002-412), the access tandem and direct connection rates were reduced to reflect the Phase II costs of providing the service plus a 15% mark-up, effective 1 June 2002.


The Commission notes that, as part of its application, Microcell has reflected the access tandem and direct connection rates of the ILECs subject to Orders 2002-384 and 2002-412.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission approves the terms and conditions of the General Tariff, and approves on an interim basis, effective 1 June 2002, all of the rates contained in the General Tariff.


Microcell is to issue revised tariff pages forthwith to reflect these changes.
