RE:  Primus Management ULC (Primus) Part 1 Application - Request for interim and final relief related to rate increases for unbundled local loop (ULL) being imposed by Bell Canada on Primus effective 1 January 2021

Dear Mr. Prenetta:

On 14 December 2020, Primus Management ULC (Primus) filed a Part 1 application requesting that the Commission:

  1. Grant interim relief on an expedited basis in the form of an order prohibiting Bell Canada from increasing the rates it charges Primus for unbundled local loops (ULLs) on 1 January 2021;
  2. Grant final relief in the form of an order requiring Bell Canada to maintain the rates it currently charges Primus for ULLs for a duration of twelve (12) months, in order to allow Primus to migrate the customers it serves via ULLs to an alternative service.

On 5 February 2021, Primus notified the Commission that Bell Canada and Primus had resolved the issues raised in the application, and therefore requested to withdraw their application and that the Commission close the file.

In light of the above, Commission staff advises that this Part 1 Application is now closed.
