Telus Communications Company TN 361, Former TCI TN 623 and TCBC TN 4330 Interrogatories

Question 1

Commission staff notes that on 11 May 2009, TCC had submitted a list of Held Orders in Alberta and British Columbia. Should the Commission approve the above tariff notices, what does the company propose to charge for the facilities’ construction associated with those and other current held orders received prior to the tariff implementation date?

Question 2

If the company was to propose a grandfathering of the previous tariffs to accommodate the existing customer charges for facility construction, provide specific end date or period for which the current rate will still apply.

Question 3

If the company was to propose that the current tariffs remain in effect for previously placed construction orders, then in effect two “rates” would be charged for similar construction, provide an estimate of the impact on the price cap indices.
