Order CRTC 2001-616

Ottawa, 2 August 2001

Bell Canada
Tariff notices 6593 and 736 (NST)

Introduction of dedicated access services


The Commission denies Bell Canada's applications to introduce 112/128 kilobit per second access services under the digital channel services (DCS) and digital network access (DNA) service.


The Commission notes that the imputation tests submitted by the company were aggregated on a portfolio-wide basis for each of DCS and DNA. The Commission considers that, at a minimum, the imputation test should be submitted separately for each service speed.


In any future filings regarding these services, Bell Canada is requested to specify whether the link and access services should be assessed on a combined basis, and whether the channel service should be assessed on a standalone basis.
