Re:  Part I Applications regarding Videotron’s practices related to its mobile wireless Unlimited Music service – Request for an extension to file interventions

Dear Sir:

The Commission is in receipt of a letter, dated 1 October 2015, from the Canadian Network Operators Consortium Inc. (CNOC) requesting an extension to the current filing date of 5 October 2015 for submission of interventions in the above-noted proceeding. CNOC submitted that, among other things, an extension is necessary to provide CNOC an adequate opportunity to fully review the record of the proceeding and prepare its intervention.  CNOC requested that the deadline for interventions be extended until fifteen days after Videotron has filed responses to the Commission’s upcoming requests for information or alternatively to 20 October 2015. On 2 October 2015, the Commission received a letter from Videotron opposing CNOC’s extension request. The Commission also received a letter dated 2 October 2015 from the Canadian Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic in support of CNOC’s request.

Commission staff considers that the current process – with interrogatories following the Respondent’s answer – is appropriate. In the circumstances Commission staff considers that an extension to the filing date for submissions is reasonable.

Accordingly, the Respondent may file its Answer and interested parties may file interventions with the Commission, serving copies on all other parties, by 14 October 2015.  The remaining phases of this process will be set out at a later date.
