RE:   Tariff Notice 882 - Private Wire Service: Internet Transport Service Yellowknife to Edmonton

Dear Sir:

On 6 February 2012, the Commission received the above-mentioned tariff notice submitted by Northwestel Inc.  In its application, Northwestel Inc. submitted that its application was a Group B retail tariff filing under Approval mechanisms for retail and CLEC tariffs, Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2008-74, 21 August 2008.

Commission staff considers that this application does not meet the definition of a Group B retail tariff filing as it does not deal with a service provided to retail customers, but with a service that would be provided only to competitors.  For purposes of efficiency, the Commission will process this application as a Competitor tariff filing rather than close the file and require the company to re-file it as a new application.

Accordingly, the application will follow the procedures described in Information Bulletin 2010-455 for Competitor tariffs:

The company is therefore not to implement its proposed tariff until a Commission order is issued disposing of this application.

Yours sincerely,

‘Original signed by Y. Davidson’

Yvan Davidson
Director, Costing and Competitive Services
