Aliant Telecom Inc.
Reference: Tariff notices 15 and 15A

Calling features


The Commission received an application by Aliant Telecom Inc. (Aliant Telecom), dated 17 April 2002, and amended on 5 June 2002, to revise Aliant Telecom General Tariff item 900, Promotions; Island Telecom Inc. (Island Tel) General Tariff item 800, Enhanced Local Services; NBTel Inc. General Tariff item 200, Calling Features, and Special Services Tariff item 5067.1, Call Answer Service; and NewTel Communications Inc. General Tariff item 370, Miscellaneous Equipment and Services, and item 385, Calling Features, in order to:

- increase the monthly rates for Call Answer in the Newfoundland and New Brunswick regions from $4.95 to $6.00;

- change the multi-feature discounts rates in all regions except Nova Scotia;

- increase the monthly rates for Call Return, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, Three-Way Calling, Speed Calling and Distinctive Ringing in the New Brunswick region from $3.95 to $5.00 for both residence and business; and

- introduce a promotion for certain enhanced local calling features.


In Telecom Order CRTC 2002-224, dated 29 May 2002 (Order 2002-224), the Commission approved in part Tariff Notice (TN) 15. The Commission denied the proposed promotion, since Aliant Telecom had not provided an imputation test as required for promotions exceeding 12 months.


The Commission also received an application by Aliant Telecom, dated 5 June 2002,

to revise Maritime Tel & Tel Limited General Tariff item 1600, Enhanced Local Services, to include wording that should have been included in TN 15 in order to harmonize the wording regarding the monthly charge for either Call Display and Call Answer as a second feature with that of Island Tel General Tariff item 800.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission approves TN 15A and approves on a final basis TN 15, except for the promotion that was denied in Order 2002-224.
