Subject: Implementation plan of strong intermodal wireless number portability (WNP) in KMTS' exchanges of Kenora and Keewatin, ON

Dear Mr. Gilbert:

On 20 December 2017, the Commission received KMTS’ implementation plan associated with introducing intermodal WNP in the exchanges of Kenora and Keewatin, Ontario, following a request from Rogers Communications Canada Inc. (RCCI). The Commission received comments from RCCI on 16 January 2017.
At paragraph 16 of its implementation plan, KMTS indicated that it would be providing the Commission with a cost recovery proposal related to the intermodal WNP implementation in January 2017. It also stated that this proposal would be accompanied by a supporting economic study that would quantify and detail the implementation costs. To date, the Commission has not received KMTS’ cost recovery proposal.

Commission staff considers that KMTS has had sufficient time to develop a cost recovery proposal, including the related cost study. Commission staff also considers that based on KMTS’ proposed timeline, the Commission should already have received KMTS’ cost recovery proposal. Therefore, KMTS is directed to file its cost recovery proposal by 24 March 2017. Please note the following:

Interested parties will have until 7 April 2017 to provide comments on the economic study and the related documents KMTS will have until 18 April 2017 to provide its final reply.

Sincerely,
