Telecom Order CRTC 2004-16

  Ottawa, 12 January 2004

TELUS Communications Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 131

OC-192 Wavelength Service


The Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI), dated 12 December 2003, to revise its Special Facilities Tariff item 687, OC-192 Wavelength Service, proposing service features and technology that differ from those covered by the General Tariff. TCI submitted that this service satisfied the conditions applicable to a type 1 customer specific arrangement (CSA) as contemplated by Review of regulatory framework, Telecom Decision CRTC 94-19, 16 September 1994, and Bundling framework developed for customer-specific arrangements, Order CRTC 2000-425, 19 May 2000 (Order 2000-425).


The Commission received no comments with respect to TCI's application.


The Commission finds that the proposed service is a CSA within the meaning of Order 2000-425 and that it satisfies the conditions, including the imputation test, in respect of type 1 CSAs. Further, the Commission is satisfied that the proposed service would not generate sufficient demand to justify a General Tariff offering. However, the Commission notes that the proposed tariff pages contain references to the TELUS OCN Master Services Agreement (the Agreement), and finds that these references should be removed and replaced with the relevant terms and conditions.


Accordingly, the Commission approves on an interim basisTCI's application, effective from the date of this order, with the following change: delete all references in the proposed tariff pages to terms and conditions of the Agreement and incorporate the relevant terms and conditions in the tariff pages.
