Dear Ms.Griffin-Muir:

Re:  Application Concerning Overbilled Service Charges by TELUS for B8ZS Line Coding on CDN Accesses

On 20 August 2009, the Commission received the above-mentioned Part VII application from MTS Allstream Inc.

In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications applications, 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 applicable 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 four months of the close-of-record.

Yours sincerely,

Original signed by Mario Bertrand
