Questions:

  1. Considering paragraph 12 of intervention number 137 from AT&T Mobility Canada Co and with respect to the Internet of Things (loT):
    1. Do you have any arrangements with device providers that result in your customers being exempt from data charges that would otherwise apply in relation to the use of an internet-connected device?
    2. If you have any such arrangements, what percentage of your customers would be subject to such data charge exemptions?
    3. If you have such arrangements, what factors and considerations determine whether you, the ISP, will agree to exempt your customers from data charges?
    4. If you do not have any such arrangements, why not?  What factors and considerations have led you not to enter into any such arrangements?
