RE: Registration of RFNow Inc. as a Proposed CLEC
Dear Mr. Bugg:
On March 15, 2010, RFNow Inc. wrote to the Commission to register as a Proposed CLEC in order to provide commercial telecommunications services. Based on the information provided, RFNow Inc. meets the requirements to be placed on the Proposed CLEC list and is hereby authorized to:
- Proceed with further arrangements as necessary to allow it to provide local switched services as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC). However, you are reminded that you may not offer services to the public as a CLEC until all the conditions of Decision 97-8 and any subsequent relevant Decisions have been satisfied.
You will find a description of the requirements for registration as a full CLEC at the following link, which summarizes the CLEC obligations defined in Decision 97-8: http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/comm/telecom/eslcclec.htm
RFNow Inc. is reminded that in order to remain on any Facilities-Based registration list(s), it must comply with the appropriate regulatory regime and complete the following forms in the Data Collection System (DCS) on an annual basis:
- Canadian Telecommunications Common Carrier Ownership and Control Filings
- Registration List Contact Information
- Reporting Entity Profile
- Annual Revenue Report Form
The registered entity must also keep any information in its Basic International Telecommunications Services (BITS) license application current.
Failure to comply with any of the above noted statutory requirements will result in the revocation of RFNow Inc.’s authority to provide service and removal from the CRTC’s registration list(s).
