PIAC et al. requested that the deadline for initial interventions be deferred from 30 June 2015 to 14 July 2015 and that the deadline for the initial interrogatories be deferred from 7 August to 21 August 2015.

The Commission received comments on PIAC et al.’s request from Bell Canada, the British Columbia Broadband Association, the Canadian Independent Telephone Company Joint Task Force, Rogers Communications Partnership, SSi Group of Companies, and TELUS Communications Company.
