RE: Fido Solutions Inc. / Primus Telecommunications Canada Inc. - IP Interconnection Agreement

Dear Sir:

On 28 May 2015, the Commission received an application by Fido Solutions Inc. (Fido) in which it requested Commission approval for an Internet Protocol (IP) Master Agreement for Local Interconnection (MALI) between Fido and Primus Telecommunications Canada Inc.

In Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2012-24 (TRP 2012-24), the Commission decided, among other things, to forbear from the exercise of its powers under sections 25, 29, and 31, and subsections 27(1), (5), and (6) of the Telecommunications Act, with respect to IP and TDM voice network interconnection services provided pursuant to negotiated arrangements.

It appears to Commission staff that the application submitted by Fido is within the ambit of this forbearance determination. Accordingly, the application has been closed.

Staff notes, however, that the Commission has clarified, in Telecom Decision CRTC 2012-396, that the forbearance determination in TRP 2012-24 referenced above, does not apply to Schedule C of a MALI.  Any Schedule C would still have to be filed with and approved by the Commission.
