  Ottawa, 16 December 2004

TELUS Communications Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 160

Withdrawal of the Digital Private Line Large Business Service in Alberta and British Columbia


The Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI), dated 9 November 2004, to withdraw General Tariff item 505, Digital Private Line Large Business Service, in Alberta and British Columbia.


Digital Private Line Large Business Service provides for the digital transmission of information at 64 Kbps (DS-0) and at 1.544 Mbps (DS-1) on DS-0 or DS-1 facilities provided between TCI's wire centres or rate centres, or between TCI's rate centre and an international border crossing point in Canada.


TCI stated that there are no customers for the service. The company submitted that, as an alternative, customers can subscribe to TCI's Inter-Office Digital Channels service which provides for unchannelized interexchange point-to-point digital facilities up to DS-3 bandwidth, or other data offerings from TCI or other competitors.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


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