Telecom Order CRTC 2003-221

Ottawa, 30 May 2003

Téléphone Milot inc.

Reference: Tariff Notice 21

Residential primary exchange service


The Commission received an application by Société d'administration des tarifs d'accès des télécommunicateurs on behalf of Téléphone Milot inc. (Milot), dated 27 March 2003, to revise item 2.1.6, Exchange and extended area links, of its General Tariff in order to increase its residential individual line monthly rate from $22.75 to $23.25.


Milot also requested an increase for its residential primary exchange service (PES) by the rate of inflation and the inclusion of some of its unused rate increase from 2002.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


In Regulatory framework for the small incumbent telephone companies, Decision CRTC 2001-756, 14 December 2001 (Decision 2001-756), the Commission grouped services into four separate service baskets each with their own pricing constraints. The Commission assigned residential PES to the first service basket.


In Decision 2001-756, the Commission also determined that:

- in the absence of any exogenous factors, the rates for residential PES would be permitted to increase each year by no more than inflation; and

- unused portions of a possible rate increase for any given year could be accumulated and requested in a following year.


The Commission finds that Milot's proposed rate increase is in accordance with the Commission's determinations in Decision 2001-756.


The Commission approves Milot's application. The revision takes effect as of 1 July 2003.


Milot is to issue a revised tariff page forthwith to reflect this change.
