RE: Tariff Notice 31

Dear Madam:

On 26 November 2012, the Commission received an application by Hay Communications Co-operative Limited (Hay Communications, or the company) under cover of Tariff Notice 31 (TN 31), in which the company proposed revisions to its Access Services Tariff to become a Type I competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC).

In TN 31, Hay Communications proposed to include, in its Access Services Tariff, part B related to interconnection with local exchange carriers, consistent with the Commission’s CLEC Model Tariff (version 34-1). The company did not, however, propose to include a tariff item related to 9-1-1 emergency response service.

Hay Communications is requested to describe, in detail, how the company intends to provide 9-1-1 service to its end-customers, and provide its rationale for not proposing to include the relevant section within its Access Services Tariff, consistent with the Commission’s CLEC Model Tariff.

Hay Communications is requested to submit its response to the Commission no later than 20 December 2012. Failure to do so will result in this file being closed without a Commission determination.

Consequently, this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, will not be approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day following receipt. However, the Commission intends to dispose of this application, along with all associated subsequent revisions, within 45 business days of receipt of a complete application.

Yours sincerely,

‘Original signed by M. Murray’

Michel Murray
Director, Regulatory Implementation
