As part of the Canadian Cable Television Association proceeding (EB-2003-0049), the Board approved a charge of $22.35 per pole attachment per year. In the Canadian Distributed Antenna Systems Coalition proceeding (EB-2011-0120), the Board confirmed that this rate applies to both wireline and wireless attachments. This charge applies to all electricity distributors with the exception of Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited (“THESL”). In the THESL Wireless Attachment proceeding (EB-2013-0234), the Board determined that THESL could charge market rates for all wireless attachments. The Board has now commenced a consultation to consider whether all electricity distributors should have their licences amended to allow market rates to be charged for wireless attachments, under the same conditions as THESL.
