Telecom Order CRTC 2003-210

  Ottawa, 28 May 2003

MTS Communications Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 502

Local network interconnection and component unbundling


The Commission received an application by MTS Communications Inc. (MTS), dated 17 April 2003, to revise Supplementary Tariff - Access Services for Interconnection with Carriers and Other Service Providers item 105, Local Network Interconnection and Component Unbundling, in order to reference the specific labour rates and conditions that would apply for Loop Modification service.


In Follow-up to Regulatory framework for second price cap period, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-34 - Service basket assignment, Telecom Decision CRTC 2003-11, 18 March 2003 (Decision 2003-11), the Commission considered that the incumbent local exchange carriers' (ILECs) tariffs with respect to Loop Modification service were not sufficiently precise and required amendments to incorporate a reference to specific labour rates and conditions that would apply. The Commission, therefore directed the ILECs to file proposed amendments to their tariffs to either specify or incorporate a reference to the specific labour rates and conditions that would apply for Loop Modification service.


The Commission notes that the application was filed pursuant to Decision 2003-11.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission approves MTS's application. The revisions take effect as of the date of this order.
