Re: MTS – Request for an extension to file responses to a request for information with respect to Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2015-305, Matters related to the reliability and resiliency of the 9-1-1 networks.
On 25 November 2015, the Commission received a letter from MTS Inc. (MTS) in which the company requested an extension to file its response to a request for information sent by Commission staff on 17 November 2015 with respect to Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2015-305, Matters related to the reliability and resiliency of the 9-1-1 networks (the request for information related to 9-1-1 networks). Specifically, MTS requested that the company file its responses on 8 December 2015 instead of 1 December 2015.
MTS submitted that responding to this request for information would be a challenge since many of the same resources are currently preparing responses to requests for information that are all due within the same week in four other separate telecommunications proceedings.
MTS also submitted that a key resource who is required to provide much of the information needed to respond to the request for information related to 9-1-1 networks is unavailable until next week. Consequently, MTS is unable to finalize its responses until then.
Given the reasons cited by MTS, Commission staff considers that the company’s request to extend the above-mentioned deadline is reasonable and would not unduly impede the progress of this proceeding. Accordingly, MTS is to file its response to the request for information related to 9-1-1 networks by 8 December 2015.
