Our File: 8654-M3-10/01


Mr. Roy Bruckshaw
Director Regulatory Affairs

Subject: Proposed revisions to the 2000 Phase III/Split Rate Base (SRB) Manual of MTS Communications Inc.

Dear Mr. Bruckshaw:

The Commission has reviewed the company's proposed SRB Manual Update report filed on 2 April 2001.

The Commission considers that all of the proposed changes in the company's Update report are consistent with recent tariff filings, other CRTC directives and generally reflect the requisite cost causality principles that are embodied in the SRB procedures.

Accordingly, the Commission approves the updates as submitted and directs the company to file with the Commission and serve on interested parties amended SRB Manual pages that reflect these revisions within 30 days of the date of this letter.

In addition, the Commission directs the company to file revised Manual pages, as required, to reflect the Commission's determinations in paragraphs 50 to 56 of MTS Communications Inc. - Final rate increase to recover income tax expense, Decision CRTC 2001-202, dated 30 March 2001.

Yours sincerely,

Ursula Menke
Secretary General
