Dear Ms. Cossette:

On 29 June 2018, the Commission received an application by La Corporation Hearst Wi-Fibe Corporation (Hearst Wi-Fibe) under Tariff Notice (TN) 1, proposing to introduce its Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) Access Services Tariff CRTC 25690.

Commission staff is continuing its analysis of this application.

Paragraph 28(1) (a) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure provides that the Commission may require parties to file information or documents where needed.

Hearst Wi-Fibe is requested to provide comprehensive answers, including rationale and any supporting information, to the attached question by 24 August 2018.

Any revisions to tariff pages should be filed, with a covering letter, as TN 1A.  This amended TN number should be entered in the Tariff No. (TN Only)field when filing documents by GCKey.

Request for information

As set out in the Summary of Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) responsibilities and documents to be filed with the CRTC for approvalFootnote1 , proposed CLECs must file an Access Services Tariff for Commission approval based on the most recent version of the CLEC Model Tariff.  Any departure from the CLEC Model Tariff must be justified.

In PART D - Interconnection with Wireless Service Providers (WSPs) of its proposed CLEC Access Services Tariff, Hearst Wi-Fibe has removed, among others, the following sections of the CLEC Model Tariff:

The remaining Item 400 – General does not provide any information as to how WSPs will interconnect with Hearst Wi-Fibe.

  1. Provide a revised version of Item 400 – General that specifies how interconnection with WSPs will occur. If interconnection services are to be provided by Vianet Inc. (Vianet), the underlying Local Exchange Carrier, please specify that WSPs that wish to interchange traffic with Hearst Wi-Fibe may obtain interconnection services from Vianet.
