RE: Tariff Notice 13 – Revisions to General SILEC Tariff reflecting determinations made in TRP CRTC 2011-291

Dear Sir:

On 30 January 2012, the Commission received the above-mentioned tariff notice submitted by Lansdowne Rural Telephone Company. The company indicated that its application was filed as a Group A retail tariff filing under Approval processes for tariff applications and intercarrier agreements, Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-455, 5 July 2010, as amended from time to time, (Information Bulletin 2010-455).

Commission staff considers that application does not meet the definition of Group A retail tariff filings as indicated Information Bulletin 2010-455. In particular, it does not meet part (b) of the definitions of Group A retail tariff filings in that it is not housekeeping in nature.

Further, the filing was incomplete and should have contained both the prevailing and the revised tariff pages, and included in the cover letter, a description of, and the reasons for, the proposed tariff revisions.

For purposes of efficiency, the Commission will process this application as a Group B retail tariff filing rather than close the file and require the company to refile it as a new application.

Telecom circular 2010-255 states that “with respect to interim disposition of Group B filings, these filings are approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day after they are received, unless Commission staff issues a letter indicating otherwise prior to interim disposition”.

The company is not to implement these tariff revisions until this application is approved.

Yours sincerely,

“Original signed by S. Bédard”
