RE: Tariff Notice 611 – Destandardization of certain services

Dear Madam:

On December 12, 2014, the Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Company (TCC), under Tariff Notice (TN) 611, in which the company proposed amending its General Tariff to reflect the destandardization of the following services: circuits between buildings on non-continuous property and circuits between buildings on continuous property; voice and data circuits and teletypewriter and signalling circuits; and circuits for data transmission. TCC requested an effective date of March 31, 2015.

On January 15, 2015, the Commission sent a letter to TCC stating that the procedures for applications to destandardize and/or withdraw tariffed services are set out in Approval processes for tariff applications and intercarrier agreements, Telecom Information Bulletin 2010-455, 5 July 2010. This information bulletin specifies that the applicant must provide a notice to all customers affected by its application to destandardize and/or withdraw a particular service, and that the applications must include the number of customers affected and a copy of the notice sent to affected customers.

TCC’s application remains incomplete, and Commission staff is awaiting receipt of the information required to complete its analysis. Accordingly, this application will not be disposed of within 45 calendar days of its receipt. The Commission intends to dispose of this application, along with all associated subsequent revisions, within 65 business days of the receipt of the last revision associated with this application.
