The CTRC states in the Notice of Consultation that it will use this proceeding to study issues surrounding fiber to the premises (FTTP) in Canada, including “the current state of deployment; the economic and social impacts this technology will have on consumers, competitors, and incumbent carriers; the drivers for investment by incumbent carriers; and ultimately whether regulatory intervention is needed with respect to mandated sharing of FTTP facilities and, if so, to what degree.” The FTTH Council, because of its mission and extensive experience in proceedings addressing broadband development and considering unbundling and wholesale obligations of incumbent LECs in the United States, will discuss how these issues have been treated and have evolved in that country over the past two decades. The participation at the hearing of the FTTH Council would contribute a useful perspective as the CRTC considers the issues raised in the Notice. The Council, as well as its expert economics consultant, Mr. Singer, would provide the benefit of empirical research and an understanding of market incentives in both presenting and defending the Council’s positions and in examining the positions of other participants at the hearing on these matters that cannot be fully satisfied by written submissions alone.
