RE: Intention of Cogeco Connexion Inc. (Cogeco) to enter 9315-1884 Québec inc’s/La Compagnie de Téléphone de Lambton Inc. operating territory as a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in the Lambton, Quebec, exchange

Dear Richard Biron:

On 13 October 2021, the Commission received 9315-1884 Québec inc.’s (operating as Téléphone de Lambton Inc.) letter following the expression of interest by Cogeco, to provide competitive services in the Lambton, Quebec exchange, which is served by 9315-1884 Québec inc.

In its letter, 9315-1884 Québec inc. indicated that, in relation to the Lambton, Quebec exchange, Cogeco’s request would be consistent with the Commission’s approval of the local competition implementation plan for TELUS Communications Inc.,Footnote1 as well as its existing tariff (CRTC 15091). 9315-1884 Québec inc. had requested a 45-day period to implement local competition for Cogeco’s.

Staff considers that Cogeco can begin offering its services in the Lambton, Quebec exchange upon notification by 9315-1884 Québec inc. that implementation is complete. Cogeco is to confirm its intention to operate within the Lambton, Quebec exchange within 30 days of receipt of this letter. Further, staff reminds both companies that a Master Agreement for Local Interconnection (MALI) and an Appendix C must be signed for the Lambton, Quebec exchange. The notification requirements for CLECs can be found in Telecom Decision CRTC 2012-396.
