The CRTC will exempt Telus Corp. from regulation of its local residential wireline services in four Quebec communities, but not in three others, the commission said Friday. In its decision, the commission said it has agreed to Telus’ request to exempt local wireline services from regulation in the exchanges of Cap-des-Rosiers, St-Joseph, Ste-Marie-de-Beauce, and Vallée-Jonction, Que. The commission denied its requests to deregulate services in Frampton, St-Bernard-de-Dorchester, and St-Patrice-de-Beaurivage, Que. The CRTC said Telus faced sufficient competition to merit deregulation in the four approved exchanges. “The Commission notes that, for the exchanges of Frampton, St-Bernard-de-Dorchester, and St-Patrice-de-Beaurivage, the facilities-based, fixed-line telecommunications service provider on which the forbearance application is based in each of these exchanges indicated that it is not capable of serving at least 75 percent of the number of residential local exchange service lines that TCC is capable of serving,” it added. “Accordingly, the Commission determines that the exchanges of Frampton, St-Bernard-de-Dorchester, and St-Patrice-de-Beaurivage do not meet the competitor presence test," the CRTC said.
