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

In Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2015-177, dated 5 May 2015, the Commission directed the national wireless carriers to submit their proposed cost-based tariffs for domestic Global System for Mobile (GSM) communications based wholesale roaming services for voice, text message and data, supported by regulatory economic studies consistent with the Commission’s Phase II costing approachFootnote 1.

Commission staff has reviewed the 23 November 2015 tariff applications filed by Bell Mobility, TELUS Communications Company (TCC) and Rogers Communications Partnership (Rogers) and notes that TCC and Rogers did not file separate cost details for each individual regulated wholesale wireless roaming service (voice, text message and data), whereas, Bell Mobility was in compliance with those reporting directives.

To promote timely and efficient consideration of these tariff applications, Commission staff requests that the following tables be filed by TCC and Rogers for each individual wholesale wireless roaming service (voice, text message and data) by 1 April 2015.

In addition, TCC and Rogers, are to provide, as appropriate, the following additional costing information for each individual wholesale wireless roaming service (voice, text message and data) consistent with the directives set out in the Staff LetterFootnote 2 dated 12 September 2013 (confidential and abridged version) using the following tables:

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 Commission staff:
