Microcell Telecommunications Inc. has taken Bell Canada to task over its argument that CLECs should be required to pay into a cross-subsidy pool from which ILECs and IXCs would be able to draw to recoup foregone lost toll revenue (RoW, Nov. 25/02 and Oct. 28/02). The Montreal-based wireless operator says the telco’s argument over the implementation of an expanded local calling area (LCA) isn’t logical and at times makes contradictory conclusions. The comments are part of the ongoing review and vary petition filed by Microcell on October 10 over the framework for expanded LCAs, established in Telecom Decision 2002-56.
