Re: Application respecting "Finalization of CDNA rebates for the interim period"
On 3 June 2005 , Call-Net Enterprises Inc., now Rogers Telecommunications Limited (Rogers) submitted a Part VII application to the Commission related to a dispute between Bell Canada and Rogers regarding the eligibility of certain carrier access circuits for CDNA service rates during the period before 3 February 2005, the date of Competitor Digital Network Services, Telecom Decision CRTC 2005-6 (Decision 2005-6).
By letter dated 8 August 2005 , Commission staff stated its understanding that Bell Canada's description referred to two different situations: Situation 1, in which the carrier access circuit was served from a different wire centre than the corresponding customer access, and Situation 2, in which the carrier access circuit passed through a carrier point-of-presence before reaching the competitor's switch.
Based on its review of Rogers ' application and associated submissions, Commission staff wishes to clarify the network location of carrier access circuits that are the subject of this dispute. Rogers and Bell Canada are therefore requested to provide their response to the following questions by 29 August 2005, serving a copy of parties to the proceeding begun by Competitor Digital Network Access service proceeding , Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2002-4, 9 August 2002 (PN 2002-4).
Please indicate whether carrier accesses in each of the following configurations are subject to this dispute. If carrier accesses in other configurations are also the subject of this dispute, please describe each such configuration, identifying whether the carrier access is located in the same ILEC wire centre area as the associated customer access and whether the carrier access connects to the competitor's switch or its point of presence (POP).
Configuration 1: The carrier access and associated customer access are located in different Bell Canada wire centre areas (the carrier access in wire centre area B and customer access is in wire centre area A). The carrier access connects Bell Canada 's wire centre to the competitor's switch in wire centre area B.
