Telecom Order

Ottawa, 24 November 1998
Telecom Order CRTC 98-1166
Bell Canada (Bell), under Tariff Notice (TN) 6293 dated 9 October 1998, has proposed tariff revisions for the introduction of a new promotion called Consumer Solutions. Eligible customers are residential customers with one to three lines who choose or have chosen Bell as their Primary Interexchange Carrier for message toll service. Such customers are eligible for reduced prices for either of two packages consisting of an individual residential line, three SmartTouch features and one Integrated Voice Messaging Service, with or without Internet Call Display. In TN 6293A dated 28 October 1998, Bell clarified customer eligibility and added Bell Relay Service to the list of services included in the promotion.
File No.: Tariff Notice 6293
1.Bell proposed to conduct the promotion from 15 November 1998 to 15 May 1999. The company also indicated that customers would be allowed to subscribe to the promotional rate for a period of 12 months following enrolment in the promotion.
2.The Commission considers that the total amount of time for enrolment and subscription to the rates is inappropriate and should be reduced.
3.In light of the above, Bell TNs 6293 and 6293A are approved, subject to changes, such that customers will have up to six months from the date of this Order to take advantage of the proposed promotional rates, which rates are to remain in effect for no more than six months from the date of enrolment.
