Changes to wireless CLEC obligations accepted

Briefs | 04/16/2007 12:50 pm EDT

The CRTC has agreed with Rogers Communications Inc. and changed certain rules for wireless competitive local exchange carriers. In Telecom Decision 2007-23, the commission ruled that wireless CLECs are no longer required to obtain a central office (CO) code for each incumbent local exchange carrier exchange in which they want to offer service. Rather they only have to acquire a CO code and location routing number per local interconnection region in which they provide service. Rogers filed the application in August 2006, noting among other things that such relief would allow the company to compete more effectively with the other wireless service providers which aren't required to abide by CLEC obligations.
