The opinions expressed in this editorial are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Decima Reports. The CRTC is going to be one busy little agency in the months to come. Not only has Call-Net Enterprises Inc. filed its “killer application” to shake up the competition rules, but now Rogers Communications Inc. is threatening to ask the commission to strip the ILECs of their power to bundle services.   At the cableco’s annual general meeting last week, honcho Ted Rogers said the “Trojan Horse of the regulatory world” permits incumbents to bundle wireline, wireless, Internet and satellite service and he wants it stopped. The company will be filing an application to the CRTC shortly, he added. Ignore for a moment that cablecos already offer bundled services to their clientele. Don’t even mention that Ted tends to use the AGM as a tool to make great pronouncements that end up stillborn. (Remember the on-and-off-and-on commitment to providing local telephony of the past few years?) The fact remains that competitors have become emboldened by recent decisions from the CRTC. CLECs have picked up important wins on winback rules (NL Update, Dec. 9/02). The ruling on affiliates handling bundled packages resulted in Bell Nexxia being quietly folded into Bell Canada (NL, Dec. 16/02). As the story in this issue shows, after a long wait, Bell was told its reasonable request to share information about customers was dismissed. The ILECs will not take this lying down, of course. Telus has shown a willingness to battle tooth-and-nail when it feels its interests have been threatened. Bell leads the charge on behalf of itself and its ILEC allies. (We’ll be charitable and assume that a story on the BCE-owned Globe and Mail web site about the Call-Net application did not deliberately misspell the name of CLEC regulatory VP Jean Brazeau.) Some of Call-Net’s requests may be dismissed as a rehash of arguments the company made during the price cap hearings in 2001. But other proposals should be given proper consideration by the regulator. All sides will offer their plans to improve the competitiveness of the industry. We are in for a lively time in the telecom world.
