Telecom Order CRTC 2002-171

Ottawa, 29 April 2002

Northwestel Inc. - Billing and collection service

Reference: Tariff notices 765 and 765A


The Commission approves on a final basis, at the rate specified in paragraph 2,the application by Northwestel Inc. (Northwestel) dated 16 November 2001, as amended by tariff notice 765A dated 6 December 2001, to introduce a billing and collection service under item 200 of its Access Services Tariff for Interconnection with Interexchange Carriers.


The rate for the processing charge per account receivable returned or charged back to the inter-exchange carrier after the billing has been reduced from $15.66 to $13.50 to reflect the efficiencies gained as experience is acquired in processing each chargeback, and the recovery of one-time costs spread over a longer period of time.


The application was approved on an interim basis in Order CRTC 2001-886, 19 December 2001.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission directs Northwestel to issue revised tariff pages forthwith.

Secretary General
