Re: NEW Wholesale residential high-speed access services150;CBB

Love this gem:

quote:
69. However, the Commission notes that Cogeco’s cost study included supplemental costs associated with spares in the event of a failure, and that a higher level of spares was assumed in their cost study for wholesale services than the level that the company maintains for its own retail services. The Commission considers that this in inappropriate, and that the costs are therefore inflated. The Commission determines that it would be appropriate for Cogeco to apply the same level of spares as it uses in its network for its retail services.
**Emphasis added

Yes Gougeco you cannot play games by claiming that you must keep ready many extra spares on hand when you don't even do this for your own customers.

Rogers did the same thing.

Appendix
quote:
Table 1
#9
Commission adjustment
Exclude these costs

Rationale for adjustment
Refer to paragraphs 29 and 31. Documentation and filing activities should already be included in other CSG activities, not as a separate and distinct activity.

Table 2
#10
Commission adjustment
Calculate proposed time estimates by assuming 1.5 interfaces per order on average, assume proposed costs are order-driven, and reduce calculated time estimate by 60%.

#13
Commission adjustment
Calculate proposed time estimates by assuming 1.5 interfaces per order on average and reduce recalculated total time estimate by 73%

There is absolutely *NO* truth to this rumour.
The CRTC is misread it.

Wow I missed those in the bottom section. This stuff is sure written in such a way that 90% of the good content can be missed completely. A mandate to switch to plain language would do the Canadian public a lot of good.

Gosh Rogers has a freaking off the chart markup on time estimates. That is plain scary.

It really looks like they added in a coffee break/smoke break/bathroom break for every little thing they do for TPIA.

Possibly because none of their reps WANT to work on the TPIA stuff.
