Telecom Order CRTC 2004-400

  Ottawa, 2 December 2004

Dryden Municipal Telephone System

  Reference: Tariff Notice 26

Introduction of Switched 56 (Datapath) service


The Commission received an application by Dryden Municipal Telephone System (Dryden MTS), dated 23 June 2004, to add item 5.01, Switched 56 - "Centrex Data" (Datapath), under section 910 of its General Tariff to introduce a new service to provide transmission of data at rates up to 56 Kbps over a standard, unloaded, two-wire subscriber loop.


Dryden MTS proposed the following rates for this service:

Service description

Monthly rate

Service charges

  • DS2DP Data Set for 2-Wire
$30.00 $158.25
  • DPATH-11 Datapath - per local (1 year contract)
$82.25 $316.50
  • DPATH-1A Datapath - per local (additional year)
$82.25 $158.25
  • DPATH-31 Datapath - per local (3-year contract)
$77.15 $316.50
  • DPATH-3A Datapath - per local (additional 3 year)
$77.15 $158.25


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, the Commission determined that the fourth basket of capped services would comprise all other services offered by the small incumbent local exchange carriers, such as optional services, multi-element service categories, special facilities tariffs and competitor access tariffs. It also determined that rates for these services would generally be permitted to increase up to any already approved rate for the same service. It stated that tariff applications could be submitted at any time and should reference when and where the Commission approved the rate. In that decision, the Commission stated that for rate increases that go beyond this, an economic study must accompany the application.


The Commission notes that Dryden MTS's proposed rates are equal to or less than rates previously approved for similar services provided by other companies.


The Commission approves Dryden MTS's application. The revisions take effect as of the date of this Order.


Dryden MTS is to issue revised tariff pages forthwith to reflect these changes.
