Telecom Order CRTC 2005-218

  Ottawa, 6 June 2005

TELUS Communications Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 366

Public switched telephone network connectivity


The Commission received an application by TELUS Communications (Québec) Inc., now TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI), dated 3 December 2003, to add Special Facilities Tariff item 4.03, PSTN Connectivity, in order to provide clients located outside the exchange with access to the public switched telephone network.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


In Review of regulatory framework, Telecom Decision CRTC 94-19, 16 September 1994, the Commission noted that customer-specific tariffs are permitted when, among other things, providing a bundle of services tailored to a particular customer's needs, primarily involving elements available from the General Tariff, where the purpose is to customize the offering in terms of rate structure or levels (for example, distance sensitive/insensitive, usage sensitive/insensitive, one-time charges, etc.).


Based on the description of the service, the Commission considers the filing of the application as a Special Facilities Tariff to be appropriate.


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