RE: Application for costs award with respect to the participation of First Mile Connectivity Consortium in Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2019-45, Call for comments – Application Guide for the Broadband Fund

Dear Mr. McMahon,

On 4 September 2019, the Commission received a letter from First Mile Connectivity Consortium (FMCC) explaining why it would be fair or otherwise in the public interest for the Commission to extend the deadline for FMCC to file its costs application.

Given the reasons provided by FMCC in its dated 4 September 2019 letter, Commission staff is of the view that it would be fair or otherwise in the public interest to vary the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules of Procedure) and extend the deadline for FMCC’s costs application. Further, this procedural letter notes that FMCC is now aware of the 30-day deadline to file costs with the Commission under section 65 of the Rules of Procedure.

Additionally, Commission staff request that FMCC provide the Commission with proof of service of its application on all other parties to the proceeding. Commission staff will only post FMCC’s costs application on its website upon receipt of this information. This will trigger the beginning of the intervention period.

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 819-664-6341 or michel.hogan@crtc.gc.ca.

Sincerely,

Originally signed by
