Re: Application for forbearance from the regulation of business local exchange services in the exchanges of Contrecoeur, Ste-Victoire, St-Ours, Mont-Laurier and Château-Richer
Dear Mr. Béland:
In order for the Commission to make a decision relating to the application for forbearance from the regulation of business local exchange services in the exchanges of Contrecoeur, Ste-Victoire, St-Ours, Mont-Laurier and Château-Richer, Commission staff requests that Vidéotron ltée (Vidéotron) file its response to the attached interrogatory, and serve a copy on all parties, by 16 July 2007.

c.c. : Marianne Blais
Application for forbearance from the regulation of business local exchange services in the exchanges of Contrecoeur, Ste-Victoire, St-Ours, Mont-Laurier and Château-Richer:
Vidéotron states, with supporting data, that it does not have the capacity to provide business local exchange services to at least 75% of the local business lines that Télébec is capable of serving in each of the four exchanges noted above. Vidéotron states that,
"Though cable companies have more and more business opportunities to provide high-speed Internet and telephony services to business customers, the companies are simply not in a position to deploy a network capable of serving a percentage even close to 75%. Furthermore, in the specific case of Vidéotron, cable telephony service for business customers is currently limited to two lines per customer location, which, by definition, excludes all but small businesses."
Provide, for each of the above-mentioned exchanges, a detailed qualitative analysis of the technical or other barriers that prevent Vidéotron from serving at least 75% of the local business lines that Télébec is capable of serving. Provide all assumptions and evidence that support your conclusions.Date Modified: 2007-07-10
