2011-01-07 - Vaxination Informatique
Description: The upcoming decision on the 2010-803 consultation has the potential to change not only the 2010-802 decision, but also the many TPIA and GAS tariffs which were filed in December 2010 as a result of the 2010-632 decision since those tariffs embraced the retail symmetry principles of 2010-802.

2010-11-29 - Vaxination Informatique
Description: Vaxination Informatique submits its initial comments for the 2010-803 public consultation. While the correct dose of regulatory symmetry ensures fair treatment of incumbents and competitors, abuse of regulatory symmetry stifles competition by allowing incumbents to impose retail pricing and restrictions upon all competitors, depriving the market of much needed choices. UBB's retail pricing model is an example of abusive use of regulatory symmetry.
