Subject: Follow-up to Telecom Decision 2014-77 – Show cause regarding permit requirements for strand equipment
In Shaw Communications Inc. – Application concerning the administration of TELUS Communications Company’s tariff for support structure service, Telecom Decision CRTC 2014-77, 20 February 2014 (Telecom Decision 2014-77), the Commission determined that the Support Structure Service item of TELUS Communications Company’s (TCC) General Tariff should be modified to provide that a licensee is not required to obtain a permit to place strand equipment, as defined in that decision, on its own cable located on strand leased from TCC.
The Commission also directed all other incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) that provide support structure services to show cause, within 30 days of the date of the decision, why the same determination should not be reflected in their tariffs.
In Follow-up to Telecom Decision 2014-77 – Show cause regarding permit requirements for strand equipment, Telecom Decision CRTC 2014-389, 24 July 2014 (Telecom Decision 2014-389), the Commission determined that ILEC support structure licensees are not required to obtain permits from ILECs for strand equipment inserted into licensee cabling attached to ILEC strand, thereby extending the determination set out in paragraph 78 of Telecom Decision 204-77 to all ILECs that provide tariffed support structure service.
The Commission directed all the ILECs, that provide support structure services and which were subject to that decision, to file for approval, within 30 days of the date of the decision, tariff revisions stating that communications-related equipment inserted into licensee cabling located on ILEC strand (i.e. strand equipment) does not require a permit.
If your company has not already done so, you are directed to file for approval, within 30 days from the date of this letter, the tariff revision described above.
