RE: Bell Canada application for access to the Edenshaw’s Chaz Yorkville multi-dwelling unit – Name of second service provider

Dear Mr. McComb:

On 14 November 2014, Edenshaw Homes Limited (Edenshaw), in response to a Commission staff letter dated 6 November 2014, submitted the name of a second communications service provider who, in addition to Rogers Communications, has entered into an access agreement to provide services in Edenshaw’s Chaz Yorkville multi-dwelling unit (MDU) project.  In its submissions with the Commission, Edenshaw requested that the name of that second service provider be treated on a confidential basis.

In response to Edenshaw’s submissions, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) filed, on 18 November 2014, a request with the Commission for the name of the second service provider to be made public.

Commission staff notes that pursuant to section 177 of Telecom Decision 2003-45, Provision of Telecommunications Services to Customers in Multi-Dwelling Units, a local exchange carrier must disclose on its web site all terms and conditions of any written access agreement concluded with a building owner for the installation of telecommunications facilities during the construction of a MDU.  Commission staff further notes that in this case, the second service provider has met its obligation and has published, on its website, a copy of the access agreement between itself and Edenshaw. 

Commission staff therefore finds that since the name of the second service provider who will be providing communications services to the Chaz Yorkville MDU has already been made public through the publication of the access agreement on the website, there are no reasons for the name of that provider to be treated as confidential in the above mentioned proceeding between Bell Canada and Edenshaw.

In light of the above, Edenshaw is requested to disclose, on the public record of the above mentioned proceeding, the name of the second service provider by 26 November 2014.

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.
