Microcell challenges Bell on argument over CLECs’ inclusion in expanded LCA

News | 12/09/2002 5:00 am EST

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 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.
