Telecom Order CRTC 2004-130

  Ottawa, 20 April 2004

Execulink Telecom Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 41

Residential and business primary exchange services


The Commission received an application by Execulink Telecom Inc. (Execulink Telecom), dated 15 March 2004, to revise item 4, Rate Schedules for Primary Exchange (Local) Service, under section 100 of its General Tariff in order to increase the following monthly rates:

- residential individual line service from $25.44 to $26.30;


- business individual line service from $51.65 to $53.41;


- business PABX trunk service (Port Franks) from $36.86 to $38.11; and


- business PABX trunk service (Thedford) from $34.56 to 35.74.


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 primary exchange service (PES) to the first service basket and business PES to the second service basket.


The Commission determined, in Decision 2001-756, that in the absence of any exogenous factors, the rates for residential and business PES would be permitted to increase each year by no more than inflation. The Commission noted however, that it expected that rate increases on any individual rate element in these two baskets of services should generally be proposed once in a 12-month period.


The Commission notes that Execulink Telecom proposed an effective date of 30 April 2004 for its proposed rate increases.


The Commission further notes that in Residential and business primary exchange services, Telecom Order CRTC 2003-262, 30 June 2003, it approved an application by Execulink Telecom to increase the monthly rates for residential and business PES effective the date of the order.


Accordingly, the Commission determines that it would not be appropriate to approve a further rate increase to the above services with an effective date prior to 30 June 2004.


In light of the above, the Commission approves Execulink Telecom's application. The revisions take effect as of 30 June 2004.


Execulink Telecom is to issue a revised tariff page forthwith to reflect these changes.
