Telecom Order CRTC 2003-248

  Ottawa, 17 June 2003

Prince Rupert City Telephones


Reference: Tariff Notice 67


Multi-element service charges and rates


The Commission received an application by Prince Rupert City Telephones (CityTel), dated 12 May 2003, to revise item 1, Service Charges - Multi-Element Service Charges, under section 6 of its General Tariff in order to:
  · increase the hourly work charge for residential subscribers from $60.50 to $66.00, the same rate as that for business subscribers;
  · introduce a service charge for additional work, in 1/2 hour increments, for both residential and business subscribers at the rate of $33.00.


CityTel also proposed non-material changes to the service charges in order to clarify the company's Multi-Element Service Charges.


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 assigned the services in question to the fourth price cap service basket. In that decision, the Commission determined that rates for such services would generally be permitted to increase up to any already approved rate for the same service.


The Commission finds that CityTel's proposed rate increases are in accordance with the Commission's determinations in Decision 2001-756.


The Commission considers that the non-material changes clarify the tariff. The Commission notes that these revisions will have no material impact on the services provided.


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


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