New ILEC Wholesale Access Regulations Adopted by the CRTC


In its Telecom Decision CRTC 2008-17 (“the Order”), released on March 3, 2008, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (“CRTC”) overhauled its rules governing competitive access to ILEC wholesale services in Canada. In particular, the Order adopted new categories for determining which ILEC facilities and services will be subject to mandatory wholesale provision to competitors.. The new framework established by the Order is expected to primarily benefit competitive carriers seeking to enter into the Canadian telecommunications marketplace by mandating access to more facilities and services controlled exclusively by the ILECs.
