RE:   Vaxination Request for Disclosure Confidential Wholesale Wireless Roaming interim tariffs- Follow-up to Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2015-177

The Commission is in receipt of a letter dated 3 July 2015 from Vaxination Informatique (Vaxination) requesting, among other things, disclosure of all the confidential information in wholesale wireless roaming interim tariff filed on 4 June by TELUS Communications Company (TCC), Bell Mobility, and Rogers Communications Partnership (Rogers), pursuant to Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2015-177, Regulatory framework for wholesale mobile wireless services.

Vaxination also suggested that the Commission order TCC, Bell Mobility and Rogers to void the non-disclosure agreements (NDA) in order to remove any legal restrictions on new entrants who have signed them.

The Commission received a letter from Bell Canada dated 13 July 2015 that characterized Vaxination’s application as more than a request for disclosure and submitted that it should be considered as part of the proceeding initiated by the Part 1 application filed Footnote 1 by Bragg Communications Inc, Quebecor Media inc. and WIND Mobile Corp. dated 24 June 2015 (the Part 1 application), with respect to the content of the interim tariff pages issued by Bell Mobility, TCC and Rogers.  In a letter dated 15 July 2015, TCC supported Bell Canada’s submission.

By letter date 14 July 2015, the Commission received Rogers’ submissions as to why the request for disclosure should be denied.

Bell Mobility and TCC have chosen not to make submissions at this time with respect to Vaxination’s request for disclosure.  To assist the Commission in the event that it decides to address the request for disclosure separately from the Part I application, Bell Mobility and TCC may file submissions with the Commission to be received no later than 5 p.m. Ottawa time on Friday 17 July 2015.

Yours sincerely,
