Re: Part VII application for relief with respect to routing of toll traffic destined to small ILECs received via Bell Canada’s transit service tariff

On 6 August 2010, Quebecor Media Inc., on behalf of its affiliate Videotron Ltd., and
Rogers Communications Partnership, on behalf of Rogers Cable Communications Inc., Rogers Wireless Inc., and Fido Solutions (collectively, the applicants) filed a Part VII application.

In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications applications, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-11, 7 December 2006, the Commission stated that it would categorize Part VII applications into two types: Type 1 applications that generally do not involve multiple parties or raise significant policy issues and Type 2 applications that do involve multiple parties and/or raise significant policy issues.

The Commission also adopted the following service standards for Part VII applications:

The Commission stated that it would inform applicants, by letter, within 10 days of the end of the comment period for applications, whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and the applicable service standard.

Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application.  Accordingly, it is expected that the Commission will issue interim or final determinations within four months of the close-of-record.

Yours sincerely,

Mario Bertrand
Director, Competition Implementation and Technology
