Re: Part VII application - WIND Mobile relief from non-compliance to wireless number portability porting intervals by Rogers Wireless Partnership

On 9 September 2010, Globalive Wireless Management Corp. operating as WIND Mobile (WIND) filed a Part VII application requesting that the Commission direct Rogers Wireless Partnership (Rogers) to correct its non-compliance with wireless number portability obligations in respect to wireless-to-wireless port-out intervals for Rogers’ Chatr branded services.

In its comments Rogers submitted that as of 13 September 2010 it was in compliance with the above obligations.  In its reply WIND confirmed, based on the results of its independent testing, that Rogers was meeting its obligations with respect to the port-out response times.

Commission staff notes that both parties have agreed that the issue of non-compliance with port-out intervals raised in the above Part VII application has been resolved.  Accordingly, the above file is closed.

Commission Staff further notes that WIND in its reply comments raised a new issue pertaining to the validation requirements prior to port-out.  New issues could be filed with the Commission as a new application or through the processes set-out in Practices and procedures for staff-assisted mediation, final offer arbitration, and expedited hearings, Broadcast and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2009-38.

Yours sincerely,
