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 – TELUS request for a new filing date - Interrogatories Second Round

By way of Commission staff letter dated 31 May 2017, Bell Mobility Inc. and Rogers Communications Canada Inc. were directed to disclose information designated as confidential in their responses to the second round of requests for information related to costing and rates. In the same letter, TELUS was directed to provide further responses to interrogatories, by 14 June 2017.

By Letter dated 12 June 2017, TELUS submitted a request for extension to file the responses and submitted that after careful consideration and a review of the effort involved to comply with the determination, it would require a nine day extension as a minimum.

The Commission staff is of the view that TELUS’ further responses to information were reasonably foreseeable as this information was subject to a previous request for information. Hence, Commission staff has carefully assessed the fourteen days deadline to take this into consideration.

However, given the necessity to have full and complete responses in order to finalize the tariffs for GSM-based wholesale roaming services, Commission staff informs all parties that the responses to the Commission staff requests for further responses by TELUS are to be filed with the Commission and served on all other parties by 23 June 2017, instead of 14 June 2017 as initially required.

Commission staff grants the requested extension with the expectation that TELUS will provide a complete and full response to the requests for further information as directed in the 31 May 2017 letter. In addition, disclosure of the responses should be consistent with the existing guidelines established in Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2012-592, Confidentiality of information used to establish wholesale service rates, 26 October 2012.

It is Commission staff’s intention to provide further process information after the request for further information is completed.

TELUS is 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:
