Telecom Order CRTC 2008-268

  Ottawa, 22 September 2008

9163-7918 Québec Inc. (operating as CoopTel) - CLEC rates for interconnection

  Reference: Tariff Notices 3 and 3A


The Commission received an application by 9163-7918 Québec Inc. (operating as CoopTel), dated 28 August 2008 and modified 16 September 2008, for approval of revisions to its General Tariff for competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) interconnection services. The company stated that the proposed tariff revisions had been prepared in accordance with the CLEC Model Tariff Version 30.


In a Commission staff letter dated 29 July 2008, all CLECs were requested 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 30 and that the effective dates are in accordance with those indicated in the 29 July 2008 letter.


Accordingly, the Commission approves on an interim basis CoopTel's application, with the following effective dates:
  • 1 June 2007 for the monthly rate for Line-Side Access (Up to 84 DS-0s) applicable in the operating territory where Télébec, Limited Partnership is the ILEC, in order to correct an inadvertent error, for the period from 1 June 2007 to 31 May 2008;
  • 1 January 2008 for the rates applicable in the operating territory where Télébec, Limited Partnership is the ILEC, for Termination of CLEC intra-local interconnection region traffic, consistent with Telecom Decision 2007-132 and Telecom Order 2007-499;
  • 1 June 2008 for the interconnection rates applicable in the operating territories where Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership; Bell Canada; and Télébec, Limited Partnership are the ILECs, consistent with Telecom Decisions 2007-27 and 2007-60.
