RE: TELUS Communications Company Tariff Notice 494

Dear Sir:

On 1 May 2015, the Commission received an application by TELUS Communications Company (TCC) under cover of Tariff Notice 494 (TN 494), in which the company proposed to revise the monthly pole rental rate from $1.44 (established in Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-900) to $1.60 as a result of the determinations of Telecom Decision CRTC 2014-645.

The Commission has received comments from Shaw Communications Inc. (Shaw), Bragg Communications Inc. carrying on business as Eastlink (Eastlink), and Allstream Inc. (Allstream) related to the application.

Commission staff is continuing its analysis of this file and has, concurrent with the sending of the present letter, issued interrogatories to TCC.  Owing to this ongoing analysis and the interrogatory process, this application will not be disposed of on the 45th business day following receipt.  However, the Commission intends to dispose of this application by October 2015.

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