Execulink Telecom Inc. – Withdrawal of multi-element service charges

File numbers: Tariff Notices 68 and 68A

1. The Commission received an application from Execulink Telecom Inc. (Execulink), dated 16 July 2012 and revised 18 July 2012, in which the company proposed to withdraw certain charges from its General Tariff item 2 – Multi-Element Service Charges.

2. Execulink proposed to remove three service charge items for work performed on a customer’s premises: Premise Demarcation Work, Work Charge, and Premise Work KSU.

3. Execulink submitted that pursuant to Order 2000-881 and Telecom Regulatory Policy 2012-83, both of which dealt with single-line inside wire services, the service charges it proposed to withdraw became redundant and are no longer being used.

4. The Commission notes that in Order 2000-881, it forbore conditionally from regulating single-line inside wire services provided by Hurontario Telephones Limited. The Commission further notes that the company’s request to change its name from Hurontario Telephones Limited to Execulink Telecom Inc. was approved by the Commission in Order 2001-197.

5. In Telecom Regulatory Policy 2012-83, the Commission determined that all incumbent local exchange carriers subject to a transfer of responsibility were required to install a jack-ended demarcation device, free of charge, following the provision of free diagnostic service to their single-line inside wire customers during the same visit to the customer's premises.

6. The Commission approved Execulink’s application on an interim basis in Telecom Order 2012-405, effective 25 July 2012.

7. The Commission did not receive any comments regarding Execulink’s application. The public record of this proceeding, which closed on 29 August 2012, is available on the Commission’s website at under “Public Proceedings” or by using the file numbers provided above.

8. In light of its previous determinations in Order 2000-881 and Telecom Regulatory Policy 2012-83, the Commission considers that Execulink’s proposal to withdraw its unused service charges is reasonable. Accordingly, the Commission approves on a final basis Execulink’s application.
