RE: Worldlink Internet & Payphone Ltd. – Application to amend TELUS Communications Company's Pay Telephone Access Line Service tariff, Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-119, 26 February 2010
Dear Mr. Reirson:
In Worldlink Internet & Payphone Ltd. – Application to amend TELUS Communications Company's Pay Telephone Access Line Service tariff, Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-119, 26 February 2010 (Telecom Decision 2010-119), the Commission directed TELUS Communications Company (TCC, or the company) to:
a. provide its PAL service in rate Band D in Alberta at a monthly rate equal to 75 percent of the lowest monthly rate for individual business lines it charges in that band, consistent with the contractual terms relating to volume and contract duration that the competitive pay telephone service provider subscribes to, or at cost, whichever is higher, effective the date of this decision; and
b. issue, within 30 days of the date of this decision, revised tariff pages reflecting the Commission's determinations in this decision regarding PAL service rates in Band D in Alberta.
By letter, dated 26 March 2010, TCC indicated that it was not offering individual business line service (contracted or non-contracted) in rate Band D in Alberta below the tariff rates set out in its former TCI General Tariff item 425 - Exchange Service. TCC submitted that, accordingly, no revisions were required to its Carrier Access Tariff item 216 - Pay Telephone Access Line Service in order to comply with the Commission’s directives in Telecom Decision 2010-119.
Commission staff notes the company’s submission that it is not presently applying rates for individual business line service in rate Band D that are lower than the rates in its tariff. Commission staff notes, however, that in exchanges in rate Band D in Alberta for which the Commission forbore from the regulation of business local exchange service, the company can at any time apply rates that are lower than the tariff rates for individual business line service in rate Band D. For this reason, TCC is requested to forthwith file revised tariff pages that reflect the Commission’s determination in Telecom Decision 2010-119.
