Dear Mr. Olivier:

RE: Implementation of wireless number portability in CityWest’s territory

The Commission received a wireless number portability (WNP) implementation plan, dated 26 July 2011, from CityWest Telephone Corporation (CityWest).  The plan was filed in response to a formal signed expression of interest from Rogers Communications, on behalf of Rogers Wireless (Rogers), which confirmed its interest in obtaining number portability in CityWest’s Prince Rupert exchange.

In a letter dated 19 January 2012, Commission staff noted that the terms and conditions for the implementation of WNP in the small incumbent local exchange carriers’ (small ILECs) territories were modified in Telecom Regulatory Policy 2012-24.1 In that decision, the Commission decided that implementation of WNP was to be conditional on the wireless carrier directly interconnecting with a small ILEC, unless otherwise negotiated.  Commission staff therefore requested Rogers to confirm to the Commission its final position regarding its WNP request in CityWest’s territory.

The Commission received a letter dated 3 August 2012 from Rogers, in which the company indicated that it no longer wanted to implement WNP in the exchange of Prince Rupert.

Therefore, this application is closed.

Yours sincerely,

‘Original signed by M. Bertrand’
