RE: Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2015-177 – Regulatory framework for wholesale mobile wireless services – Follow-up process to finalize GSM-based wholesale roaming services tariffs for the National Wireless Carriers – Modification to filing dates

Dear Madams/Sirs:

By letter dated 14 December Quebecor Media inc., on behalf of Videotron s.e.n.c., (Videotron) requested modifications regarding the procedural steps and timeframes set out in the Commission`s letter dated 11 December 2015.

In particular, Videotron requested that the Commission set the date for interested parties to file comments on the National Wireless Carriers’ cost studiesFootnote 1to be two weeks after the date on which Bell Mobility, Rogers Communications Partnership (Rogers) and TELUS Communications Company (TCC) (collectively “the national wireless carriers”) are ultimately required to comply with any orders to disclose information previously designated as confidential.

The Commission received comments on Videotron’s request from Bragg Communications Inc., carrying on business as “Eastlink”, the Canadian Network Operators Consortium Inc. (CNOC), and Bell Mobility, on behalf of itself, Rogers and TCC, supporting the request.

Commission staff hereby informs parties that the filing date for the first interventions by parties (initially 15 January 2016) and the reply comments (initially 29 January 2016) in this proceeding will be postponed until confidentiality requests with respect to information designated as confidential by the national wireless carriers in their tariff notices filed on 23 November 2015 are addressed. Further process will be scheduled at that time.

Commission staff reminds parties that the other filing dates in this proceeding are as follow:

  1. The national wireless carriers re-file revised tariff pagesFootnote 2 which reflect that interim rates approved in Order 2015-537 and include all proposed terms and conditions for the provisioning of GSM-based wholesale roaming services by 18 December 2015.
  2. Any requests for disclosure of information designated confidential by the National Wireless Carriers in their tariff notices filed on 23 November 2015 must be made by 15 January 2016.
  3. The National Wireless Carriers may file their response by no later than 29 January 2016

Parties are asked to serve all other parties with any documents filed in this proceeding, and to send an electronic copy directly to the following Commissions staff:
