RE:  Part 1 Application by Cloudwifi Inc. for an Order completing Cloudwifi’s CLEC Registration or to require Bell Canada to sign a MALI with Cloudwifi

Dear Mr. Hudda and Mr. Blakey:

Cloudwifi Inc. (Cloudwifi) filed a Part 1 application, dated 18 March 2019, in which the company requested an expedited order completing the company’s competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) registration once it has submitted its fulfillment of CLEC obligations letter, or an expedited order requiring Bell Canada to sign the Special Master Agreement for Local Interconnection (MALI), including the Schedule C to that agreement.

By procedural letter dated 26 March 2019, Commission staff informed the parties of an expedited process to consider Cloudwifi’s application. As per this process, comments were filed with respect to Cloudwifi’s application by 9 April 2019, and Cloudwifi submitted its reply on 15 April 2019.

On 16 April 2019, Bell Canada requested that the Commission vary Rule 25 of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure and the process set out in Commission staff’s 26 March procedural letter to permit it to provide a supplemental answer to the comments submitted by Cloudwifi.

Commission staff considers it appropriate to accept Bell Canada’s supplemental answer as it will provide a more fulsome record for the Commission’s consideration. 

Therefore, Cloudwifi may, by 29 April 2019, file a reply only with respect to Bell Canada’s supplemental answer dated 16 April 2019.

Any document filed with the Commission must be served on other parties.  Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, not merely sent, by that date.

Sincerely,
