Interested Parties to Telecom Notice of Consultation 2013-80

RE: Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2013-80 - Review of outstanding wholesale high-speed access service issues related to interface rates, optional upstream speed rates, and modem certification requirements rate – Interface – Requests for extension and change in process dates.

The Commission has received a letter dated 4 June 2013 from the Canadian Network Operators Consortium Inc. (CNOC) requesting an extension of the deadline for remitting comments on the responses to the interrogatories from 21 June to 8 July 2013. CNOC cited the unavailability of a key resource.

Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (Bell Aliant) and Bell Canada (collectively the Bell companies) indicated in a letter dated 4 June 2013 that they did not have an issue with CNOC’s request. The Bell companies also requested that they be permitted to file their reply comments by 24 July 2013 instead of 15 July 2013, as they have a resource issue for the 15 July deadline.

Therefore Commission staff is revising the process dates. Comments to the responses to the interrogatories and the Bell Aliant Atlantic revised cost study may be filed by 19 July 2013. Reply comments from the incumbent may be filed by 26 July 2013.

Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, not merely sent, by that date. Copies of the documents should also be sent to

Yours sincerely,
