Dear Mr. Schmidt:

On 17 July 2014, DiversityCanada and the National Pensioners Federation submitted a part 1 application regarding TELUS’ prepaid wireless, pay-per-use Large Prepaid Balance Policy.

In order for the Commission to properly dispose of PIAC-CAC’s application, further information is required.

Accordingly, Commission staff requests that TELUS respond to the attached request for information no later than 27 October 2014, serving a copy all other parties to the proceeding.

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.

Enclosure (1)

Attachment 1 – Request for Information

  1. When the Large Prepaid Balance Policy came into effect on 20 October 2013, please clarify how TELUS applied the policy to customers who had previously purchased a top-up that was not set to expire for 365 days from the date of activation and who had an account balance of $300 or more.  When would such customers be required to have a 30-day rate plan or add-on on their account?
