CLEC rates for interconnection


The Commission received an application by MTS Allstream Inc. (MTS Allstream), dated 28 July 2006 and amended on 27 September and 6 October 2006, for approval of revisions to its General Tariff for competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) interconnection services. MTS Allstream stated that the proposed tariff revisions had been prepared from the CLEC Model Tariff Version 27.


In a letter dated 27 September 2006, the Commission requested all CLECs to file proposed tariffs to reflect the incumbent local exchange carriers' (ILECs) interconnection rates or to file proposed rates with cost justification for any departures from the ILECs' interconnection rates.


The Commission has reviewed the company's proposal and is satisfied that it follows the CLEC Model Tariff Version 27 and implements the effective dates indicated in the 27 September 2006 Commission letter.


Accordingly, the Commission approves on an interim basis MTS Allstream's application, with the following effective dates:
  • 29 May 2006 for the local interconnection regions (LIRs) terms and conditions, as per Follow-up to Trunking arrangements for the interchange 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);
  • 1 June 2006 for the LIRs rates, as per Decision 2006-35 and Regulatory framework for second price cap period, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-34, 30 May 2002, as amended by Telecom Decision CRTC  2002-34-1, 15 July 2002.
