Dear Ms. Mallette:
RE: Provincial Tel’s request to consolidate two local interconnection regions in Manitoba
Commission staff considers that additional information is necessary for the Commission to make a determination regarding the above-noted application.
As such, Provincial Tel is to submit responses to the enclosed interrogatories (see Appendix 1) with the Commission no later than 1 March 2010.
Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, and not merely sent, by that date.

Director, Competition, Implementation and Technology
