Northwestel Inc. – Interim approval of tariff applications

  1. The Commission approves on an interim basis the following tariff applications:
    Applicant Tariff Notice and description Date of application Effective date
    Northwestel Inc. TN 1137
    General Tariff – Increased Speeds and Usage Caps for Terrestrial Internet Services
    19 August 2021 8 April 2022
    Northwestel Inc. TN 1137A
    General Tariff – Increased Speeds and Usage Caps for Terrestrial Internet Services
    21 February 2022 8 April 2022
  2. The Commission has received interventions in relation to these applications; however, the Commission considers it appropriate to approve the applications on an interim basis prior to reviewing the whole record, in order to allow Canadians in the North to benefit from the proposed improvements to Northwestel’s Terrestrial Internet Services as soon as possible. The Commission will address the comments and replies in its final determination regarding Northwestel’s applications, and any related issues if necessary, in a subsequent order that will be based on the complete record.
  3. The interim approval of these applications complies with the 2006 and 2019 Policy DirectionsFootnote 1 by facilitating efficient tariff processes while enabling the Commission to consider, on the basis of a complete record, how its final decisions can promote competition, affordability, consumer interests, and innovation.
  4. Revised tariff pages are to be issued within 10 calendar days of the date of this order. Revised tariff pages can be submitted to the Commission without a description page or a request for approval; a tariff application is not required.
