Telecom Order CRTC 2005-109

  Ottawa, 18 March 2005

Le Téléphone de St-Éphrem inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 34

Billing and collection service


The Commission received an application by Le Téléphone de St-Éphrem inc. (St-Éphrem), dated 10 February 2005, to revise General Tariff item 4.7, Billing and Collection Service by the Rebiller to the Eligible Service Provider, in order to increase its monthly billing and collection service rate from $0.1163 to $0.2413.


St-Éphrem submitted that the proposed rate is identical to the rate previously approved by the Commission for Saskatchewan Telecommunications for the same service in Regulatory framework for second price cap period, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-34, 30 May 2002 and Société d'administration des tarifs d'accès des télécommunicateurs in Billing and collection service, Telecom Order CRTC 2005-22, 14 January 2005.


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 (Decision 2001-756), the Commission determined that the fourth basket of capped services would comprise all other services (not in baskets one, two or three) 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.


The Commission notes that the rate proposed by St-Éphrem meets the requirements set out in Decision 2001-756.


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


St-Éphrem is to issue a revised tariff page forthwith to reflect this change.
