RE:  Tariff Notice 1059 - Addition of speed tiers – Special Assembly #7

Dear Sir:

On 19 September 2019, the Commission received an application from Northwestel under Tariff Notice 1059, requesting approval to revise its Special Services Tariff CRTC 3010 - Item 775 in order to introduce two additional speed tiers for Site Category #2 communities.

Commission staff is continuing its analysis of this application.

Consequently, this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, will not be approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day following receipt. However, the Commission intends to dispose of this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, within 45 business days of receipt of the filing.
