Dear Ms. Chuter:

Re:  Tuckersmith Tariff Notice 27

On 11 June 2010, the Commission received an application from Tuckersmith Communications Cooperative Ltd. (Tuckersmith), proposing revisions to its General Tariff – Exchange Service – General, CRTC 25580, Section 100, Rate schedules for Primary Exchange Service.  Specifically, the company proposed to introduce bundles #1 to #5.   

Tuckersmith indicated that it had introduced bundles #1 to #4 on January 1, 2009 in the absence of an approved tariff, and therefore requested that the Commission ratify the rates, pursuant to Section 25(4) of the Telecommunications Act for the period from 1 January 2009 until the effective date of the application.

Tuckersmith identified Tariff Notice 27 as a Group B retail filing.

In Approval mechanisms for retail and CLEC tariffs, Telecom Decision

CRTC 2008-74, 21 August 2008 (Telecom Decision 2008-74), the Commission determined that Group B tariff filings will be approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day after they are filed, unless Commission staff issues a letter prior to the 15th calendar day indicating otherwise.

The Commission is considering the company’s request for ratification; consequently, this application, and any subsequent amendments associated with it, will not be approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day after they were received. 

The Commission, however, intends to dispose of the application, along with any subsequent amendments associated with it, within 45 business days of the date of the last amendment filed.


Yours sincerely,
