RE: Tariff Notice #28 – Interoperating Company Transit Trunk Service.

Dear Sir:

On 7 March 2013, the Commission received the above-mentioned tariff notice submitted by Wightman Telecom Ltd. (Wightman), in which the company proposed to introduce Interoperating Company Transit Trunk Service. The company submitted that its application was a Group B 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 the application does not meet the definition of a Group B retail tariff filing as indicated Information Bulletin 2010-455 because it does not deal with services provided to retail customers, but with services that would be provided only to competitors. For efficiency, the Commission will process this application as a Competitor tariff filing rather than close the file and require the company to refile it as a new application.

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

• Interested parties may file interventions within 30 calendar days of the filing date of an application; and
• the applicant may file reply comments within 10 calendar days of the deadline for filing interventions.
• the applicant may file reply comments within 10 calendar days of the deadline for filing interventions.

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

Yours sincerely,
