Telecom Order CRTC 2004-332

  Ottawa, 4 October 2004

TELUS Communications Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 153

Untariffed OC-3 Inter-exchange Channels service


The Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI), dated 27 August 2004, to introduce Special Facilities Tariff item 690, OC-3 Inter-exchange Channels - Protected (B.C. Only), in order to tariff a previously untariffed customer-specific OC-3 Inter-exchange Channel service between various TCI central offices in British Columbia.


TCI filed an imputation test in support of its application.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission notes that for a new service or a rate decrease, the proposed rate must be supported by, and satisfy, an imputation test. The Commission also notes that the imputation test is the accepted method, under the current regulatory regime, of determining whether the proposed rates would be anti-competitive.


The Commission finds that the proposed rates for the OC-3 Inter-exchange Channel service pass the imputation test.


The Commission also notes that TCI acknowledged that it had been offering its OC-3 Inter-exchange Channel service on an untariffed basis. The Commission reminds TCI of its obligations pursuant to subsection 25(1) of the Telecommunications Act, whereby no Canadian carrier shall provide a telecommunications service except in accordance with a tariff filed with and approved by the Commission.


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