RE: Registration of Switch Inc. as a proposed CLEC and as a non-dominant carrier
On 5 April 2012, Switch Inc. (Switch) completed the requirements to register as a proposed Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) and as a non-dominant carrier. Based on the information provided, Switch meets the requirements to be placed on the lists of proposed CLECs and non-dominant carriers and is hereby authorized to:
- Proceed with further arrangements as necessary to allow it to provide local switched services as a CLEC. However, you are reminded that you may not offer services to the public as a CLEC until all the conditions of Decision 97-8 and any subsequent relevant Decisions have been satisfied.
You will find a description of the requirements for registration as a full CLEC at the following link, which summarizes the CLEC obligations defined in Decision 97-8: http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/comm/telecom/eslcclec.htm
- Provide a class of forborne telecommunications services not including among those exempted by Telecom Decision 95-19 (http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/1995/DT95-19.htm)
