RE:  Sogetel Tariff Notice 183


On 18 October 2017, the Commission received an application by Sogetel under Tariff Notice 183, in which it proposed to add to Item 2.6.2 of Sogetel’s Access Services Tariff (AST) the direct connect rate approved for Telephone Milot Inc. (TMI).

Sogetel noted that it had merged with TMI on 1 January 2016. It noted that there were no active tariff applications for the two ASTs and that the rates were identical except for the TMI direct connect rate approved in Telecom Order 2017-282, 10 August 2017. Sogetel also certified that its tariff application was a Group A filing.

Sogetel gave no reason why its application qualifies as a Group A filing. However, Sogetel’s application includes the introduction of a new rate element in its AST (TMI`s direct connect rate), which the Commission’s determinations do not contemplate as constituting a Group A application as reflected in Approval processes for tariff applications and intercarrier agreements, Telecom Information Bulletin 2010-455-1, 19 February 2016.

For efficiency, the Commission will process this application as a competitor tariff filing rather than close the file and require the company to refile it as a new application. As such, interested parties may file interventions within 30 calendar days of the date of this letter, and Sogetel may file reply comments within 10 calendar days of the deadline for filing interventions.

The Commission intends to dispose of this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, within 45 business days of receipt of the filing.
