Re: Process amendment related to Public Notice 2006-15
In Review of proposals to dispose of the funds accumulated in the deferral accounts , Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2006-15, 30 November 2006 (PN 2006-15), the Commission initiated a proceeding to consider proposals submitted by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership, Bell Canada, MTS Allstream Inc., Saskatchewan Telecommunications, and TELUS Communications Company (TCC) - collectively the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) - to dispose of the funds accumulated in their deferral accounts. These proposals included the expansion of broadband services to rural and remote communities and initiatives to improve access to telecommunications services for persons with disabilities.
The procedure outlined in PN 2006-15 included the filing by alternative broadband service providers, by 19 January 2007 , of submissions with respect to the exclusion of any community identified for broadband expansion by one of the above ILECs on the basis that it is already served or is likely to be served in the near future. The procedure also directed the ILECs to file their responses to the Commission's interrogatories on the same date. 
On 14 December 2006 , the Commission received a letter from the Canadian Cable Systems Alliance Inc. (CCSA) requesting a 30-day extension to the 19 January 2007 filing deadline for submission by alternative broadband service providers. The CCSA stated that it had already collected information from its members in anticipation of this proceeding, but that the information required from alternative broadband service providers as identified in PN 2006-15 was more detailed than what had been collected. The CCSA further indicated that both the CCSA and its members have very limited resources available to prepare the responses to the requested information, and that the holiday season made it difficult to expedite the return of data from its members to meet the deadline set out in PN 2006-15.
In a letter to the Commission dated 15 December 2006, Bell Canada submitted that it was not opposed to the CCSA's proposed 30-day extension, provided that the 19 January 2007 due date for the filing of the ILECs' responses to the Commission interrogatories also be extended by 30 days, and any further changes to the procedures set out in PN 2006-15 which may be required in light of the above changes do not result in any delays to the date by which the Commission would have otherwise rendered its decision in this proceeding.
On 20 December 2006 , TCC submitted a letter indicating that it did not object to the CCSA's request or Bell Canada 's request for a 30-day extension for the filing of the ILECs' responses to the Commission's interrogatories. Rogers Communications Inc. and Cogeco Cable Inc. also submitted letters in support of the CCSA's request for a 30-day extension, on 21 December and 22 December 2006 respectively.
Commission staff notes the letters received in support of the CCSA's request for extension. Given the large number of registered participants in this proceeding, Commission staff considers that the process will benefit from the aggregated submissions of parties such as the CCSA which intends to file information on behalf of its members. The CCSA's request for a 30-day extension to the date by which alternative broadband service providers have to submit their exclusion information, and Bell Canada 's request that the date by which the ILECs must submit their responses to the Commission's interrogatories also be extended by 30 days, are acceptable.
The procedure set out in PN 2006-15 is modified as indicated in the attachment to this letter. For ease of reference, the paragraph numbers have been maintained as they appear in PN 2006-15, and the revised dates are shown in bold.
