Re: Registration of GB Tel Incorporated as a CLEC
Dear Mr. Gils:
This letter is to confirm that GB Tel Incorporated (GBTEL) completed the requirements to register as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC). Based on the information provided, GBTEL meets the requirements to be placed on the CLEC list as a CLEC type IV and is hereby authorized to:
- Provide local switched services as a CLEC provided it continues to meet the requirements set out in Decision 97-8 (http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/comm/telecom/eslcclec.htm).
- Provide local switched services as a CLEC in the exchange of Chatsworth, Collingwood, Hepworth, Meaford, Owen Sound, Tara, Thornbury, Wiarton (ON) in Bell Canada’s territory.
GBTEL is reminded that in order to remain on any Facilities-Based registration list(s), it must comply with the appropriate regulatory regime and complete the required information in the Data Collection System (DCS) on an annual basis.
As indicated in Telecom Decision 2006-58 paragraph 85, the Commission considers that through this process, it will become aware, on a timely basis, should a small CLEC exceed the 10,000 customer threshold. The Commission determined that once a small CLEC exceeds the customer threshold or ceases to offer local VoIP services through a reseller and offers local VoIP services through its own resources, it must implement all the CLEC obligations, from which it may have obtained relief, within six months.
The registered entity must also keep any information in its Basic International Telecommunications Services (BITS) license application current.
Failure to comply with any of the above-noted statutory requirements may result in the revocation of GBTEL‘s authority to provide service and removal from the CRTC’s registration list(s).
