Dear Mr. Woodhead:


RE:   Part VII application to recover administrative costs associated with the introduction of Competitor Digital Network service


On 20 March 2009, the Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Company (TCC), in which the company requested that it be allowed to recover the administrative costs associated with the implementation of Competitor Digital Network Access Service and Competitor Digital Network Service.


In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications application, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-11, 7 December 2006, the Commission stated that it would categorize Part VII applications into two types:   Type 1 applications that generally do not involve multiple parties or raise significant policy issues and Type 2 applications that do involve multiple parties and/or raise significant policy issues.


The Commission also adopted the following service standards for Part VII applications:

The Commission stated that it would inform applicants, by letter, within 10 days of the end of the comment period for applications, whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and the application service standard.


Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application. Accordingly, the Commission expects to issue an interim or final determination within 4 months of the close-of-record.


Yours sincerely,


Original signed by
