RE: Proceeding to consider a model Municipal Access Agreement, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2011-614

Dear Madams, Sirs:

By letter dated 21 October 2011, Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership, Bell Canada, Bragg Communications Inc. (operating as EastLink), Cogeco Cable Inc., Quebecor Media Inc. (on behalf of Videotron), Rogers Communications Partnership, Shaw Communications Inc., Télébec, Société en commandite and TELUS Communications Company (collectively, the Carriers) requested an amendment to Proceeding to consider a model Municipal Access Agreement, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2011-614, 23 September 2011 (NoC 2011-614).

Specifically, the Carriers requested that the Commission amend NoC 2011-614 such that the proceeding start with a CISC[1] process and then with a written Commission process to be determined following the issuance of CISC’s report.

By letter dated 21 October 2011, Saskatchewan Telecommunications (SaskTel) requested a more streamlined process for NoC 2011-614. In particular, SaskTel questioned the need for the interrogatory and CISC stages and suggested a written proceeding be used to focus solely on major recurring contentious issues.

Interested persons may file comments with the Commission on the Carriers’ and SaskTel’s requests no later than 7 November 2011.

Where a document is to be filed by a specific date, the document must actually be received, not merely sent, by the specified date.

Yours sincerely,
