Primus Telecommunications Canada Inc. and Bell Canada have applied to the CRTC for a review of telecom decision 2011-24 on unbundled loops. On June 2, 2009, Bell filed tariffs with the commission, proposing increases to the monthly recurring rates and one-time service charges associated with the leasing of its unbundled loops—or competitor access to its local network exchanges. The CRTC issued its decision in January, but on April 27, Bell filed a request for a review of the decision. The company is requesting that the CRTC adjust the costs that form the basis of its approved monthly recurring rates for the leasing of unbundled loops. Bell says these readjusted costs should determine the final rates. But third-party Internet reseller Primus also filed an application on May 5 for a review of the decision. Primus said Bell’s rate increases ranged from 25 per cent to 156 per cent for monthly recurring unbundled local loop charges, and that Bell requested that its new rates go into effect immediately. Primus said Bell wanted the rates to be effective prior to the 30-day comment period established by the CRTC for competitor tariffs. The company said it is asking the CRTC for a review of the decision in response to a Bell notice last April that informed its wholesale unbundled loop customers that it would including retroactive charges in its June invoices. Primus said it is asking for a review to make Bell’s rates applicable on a prospective basis. The deadline for comments on Bell’s request for a review is May 27; the deadline to comment on Primus’ request is June 6.
