Telecom Public Notice

Ottawa, 23 March 1993
Telecom Public Notice CRTC 93-34
AGT Tariff Notice 322
Bell Tariff Notice 4708
B.C. Tel Tariff Notices 2818 and 2818A
Island Tel Tariff Notice 221
MT&T Tariff Notice 319

Newfoundland Tel Tariff Notice 256
The Commission has received applications from AGT Limited (AGT), Bell Canada (Bell), British Columbia Telephone Company (B.C. Tel), The Island Telephone Company Limited (Island Tel), Maritime Telegraph and Telephone Company Limited (MT&T), The New Brunswick Telephone Company Limited (NBTel) and Newfoundland Telephone Company Limited (Newfoundland Tel) for approval of tariff revisions related to 900 Service.
In their applications, the companies propose the introduction of Premises-based 900 Service, which would allow for the termination of 900 Service calls on equipment located on the service provider's premises, as well as revisions to existing 900 Service, which would be termed Network-based 900 Service. In addition, the companies propose modifying their caller charges for Call Count and Information Arrangements to make them network usage charges payable by the service provider. The companies state that this change has been made to reflect a revised billing arrangement and to ensure consistent customer treatment between the Network-based arrangement and the new Premises-based arrangement.
With its filing, Bell has included a copy of a revised 900 Service Accounts Receivable Management (ARM) Agreement. Bell states that the Agreement outlines the terms and conditions under which Stentor members will agree to purchase the accounts receivable for a service provider's 900 Service program. Bell also states that Stentor members would not purchase accounts receivable for certain programs.
Each company's application may be examined at any of its business offices. In addition, all applications may be examined at the offices of the CRTC in the following locations:
