RE: Tariff Notice 487 – Destandardization of elements of Analog Private Line Service and Dedicated Loop Service

Dear Sir:

On 12 December 2014, the Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Company (TCC), under Tariff Notice (TN) 487, in which the company proposed revisions to its General Tariff to reflect the destandardization of elements of its Analog Private Line Service (APL Service) and its Dedicated Loop Service (Loop Service). TCC requested an effective date of 31 March 2015.

On January 15 2015, Commission staff sent a letter to TCC stating that, as summarized in Approval processes for tariff applications and intercarrier agreements, Telecom Information Bulletin 2010-455, 5 July 2010, the applicant must provide a notice to each customer affected by its application to destandardize and/or withdraw a particular service, and that applications must include the number of customers affected and a copy of the notice to affected customers.

In a letter dated 27 February 2015, TCC noted that it expected to complete the above-noted requirements in the next few weeks and requested that the Commission maintain the record of this tariff notice application active.

Consequently, this application will not be disposed of on the 45th business day following receipt of Tariff Notice 487. The Commission intends to dispose of this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, within 65 business days of the date it receives the amended application.
