Dear Mr. Messier:

RE: Cogeco Cable Inc. Tariff Notice 33

On 12 November 2010, the Commission received an application from Cogeco Cable Inc. (Cogeco) proposing revisions to its General Tariff (CRTC 26450). Specifically, Cogeco proposed to apply the General Tariff administered by Cogeco to Cogeco Data Services LP, a wholly-owned entity of Cogeco that has been placed on the CRTC proposed CLEC list.

Cogeco also requested that Cogeco Data Services LP be considered a Type IV CLEC, and relieved from the CLEC obligation of providing equal access.

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.

Commission staff is continuing its analysis. Consequently, this application will not be approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day after it was received. However, the Commission 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,

‘Original signed by S. Bédard’

Senior Manager, Tariffs
