Call-Net application for IX routes competitor tariff denied
Call-Net Enterprises Inc. has had an application it filed with the CRTC seeking a competitor tariff for inter-exchange (IX) digital transport services between Halifax and St. John’s denied. Call-Net had argued that it wasn’t economically feasible to build a network between the two cities and that Aliant Telecom, the incumbent provider, is in a dominant position. In Telecom Decision 2005-16, the commission disagreed with the view that building facilities wasn’t technically and economically feasible. "As such, the commission considers that there is no need to order the creation of a competitor tariff for IX digital transport facilities at OC-3 and OC-12 rates between Halifax and St. John’s," reads the decision.
