Re:  Obligation to serve and other matters, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2010-43: Revised procedure

By letter dated 1 June 2010, the Ontario Telecommunications Association (OTA) and TBayTel requested an extension to respond to certain interrogatories which were filed pursuant to procedures established in Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2010-43, as amended by Telecom Notices of Consultation CRTC 2010-43-1 and 2010-43-2 (NoC 2010-43).

The OTA and TBayTel requested an extension from 15 June 2010 to 29 June 2010 to file responses to the following interrogatories:

• CRTC 101, 102, 103;

• Bell Aliant 2;

• Bell Canada 1, 2, 3;

• Cable Companies 4; and


- Attachment O questions 1, 3, 4, 5

- Attachment R questions 1, 3, 4.

In its letter, the OTA and TBayTel submitted that the above interrogatories requested very detailed information.  The OTA and TBayTel submitted that, due to resource constraints, an extension was necessary to allow the small incumbent local exchange carriers sufficient time to gather and aggregate the information requested.

By letter dated 2 June 2010, the Association des Compagnies de Téléphone du Québec (ACTQ) supported this request.  These interrogatories were also posed to the ACTQ member companies.

After careful consideration, Commission staff considers it appropriate to modify the procedures set out in NoC 2010-43 with respect to the interrogatories identified above.  The changes to the dates are set out below:

Yours sincerely,
