Re: CRTC 2013-80 Optional Upstream Speeds, DSL Modem Cert
said by Teddy Boom:The stuff on costing isn't anti-climactic at all
Overall, considering the SmartRG, this modem stuff really is a bit anti-climactic
I'm not clear on exactly what scope the discussion covers, but the smack down of Bell is kind of dramatic:
As a result, the Commission has reduced the maintenance expenses for the Bell companies in Ontario and Quebec by 95 percent for the 100 Mbps interface and by 89 percent for the 1000 Mbps interface.They really need to build penalties for "excessive and unjustified" cost studies into the system.
Accordingly, the Commission finds the time estimates associated with advertising and sales management for the Bell companies in Ontario and Quebec to be unjustified. The Commission has therefore reduced the proposed time estimates to reflect the minimal ongoing advertisement and sales management activity that could be required, which results in a 99 percent reduction in advertising and sales management expenses.
The Commission considers that the proposed costs of the Bell companies in Ontario and Quebec are excessive and unjustified.
