The CRTC announced Friday a hearing to review Northwestel Inc.’s price cap regulatory framework. The framework is to go into effect in 2012. The commission said “other related matters” would also be reviewed at the hearings, scheduled to begin Oct. 4 in Yellowknife, N.W.T. The consultation comes after the commission announced its “obligation to serve” decision this week, in which Northwestel’s obligation to serve in regulated areas was maintained along with the basic service objective. Northwestel is to file its submission for the proceedings by the deadline of June 13. The comment deadline for others wishing to be parties to the hearing is July 7.
