Dear Mr. Antecol:

Re: Obligations of local VoIP service providers with respect to 9-1-1 emergency service

In a letter dated 10 November 2010, Commission staff advised Yak Communications (Canada) Corp. (Yak) to modify the company’s proposed customer notification texts in order to comply with the directives in Follow-up to Emergency services obligations for local VoIP service providers, Decision 2005-21 – Customer notification requirements, Telecom Decision CRTC 2005-61, 20 October 2005 (Telecom Decision 2005-61).  On 19 November 2010, in response to the above-noted letter, Yak filed revisions to its proposed customer notification texts.

This is to advise that Commission staff has reviewed Yak’s proposed customer notification texts and considers that they are in compliance with the Commission’s determinations in Telecom Decision 2005-61.

Yours sincerely,
