Re: Telecom Decision CRTC 2006-35
In Local Competition , Telecom Decision CRTC 97-8, 1 May 1997 (Decision 97-8), the Commission considered that it was in the public interest to require CLECs to provide interconnection for wireless service providers and equal access for all interexchange service providers, at terms and conditions equivalent to those contained in the ILECs' tariffs. The Commission required all CLECs to file proposed tariffs for interconnection and to justify any departure from the terms and conditions contained in the ILECs' tariffs.
In Follow-up to Trunking arrangements for the interexchange of traffic and the point of interconnection between local exchange carriers, Telecom Decision CRTC 2004-46 , Telecom Decision CRTC 2006-35, 29 May 2006 (Decision 2006-35), the Commission approved the amended definitions of the local interconnection regions (LIRs) proposed by each incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) and approved on a final basis, effective the date of the Decision, the interconnection rates for the termination of competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) intra-LIR traffic for each ILEC. The Commission also modified the rate structure to reflect 10 percent traffic imbalance increments. Further, the Commission directed each ILEC to issue, within 45 days of the date of the Decision, revised tariff pages that reflected the Commission's determinations in the Decision. The Commission also directed each CLEC to file proposed tariff amendments corresponding to those issued by the ILECs, within 60 days of the date of the Decision.
While the ILECs have issued revised tariff pages pursuant to Decision 2006-35, Commission staff has uncovered minor wording errors with the tariff pages issued by the ILECs. Commission staff expects to update the CLEC Model Tariff in order to reflect the Commission's determinations in
Decision 2006-35, by 1 September 2006 . To ensure compliance with the Commission's determinations in Decision 97-8, CLECs are to await the publication of version 27 of the CLEC Model Tariff before filing proposed corresponding tariff amendments as required by Decision 2006-35.
