Telecom Order CRTC 2004-109

  Ottawa, 5 April 2004

Bell Canada

  Reference: Tariff Notice 6796

Reference of calls service


The Commission received an application by Bell Canada, dated 24 February 2004, to revise General Tariff item 72, Reference of Calls (ROC) Service, in order to introduce the service permanently to residential customers as follows:
  • a three-month package consisting of a one-time non-recurring charge of $15.90 for each main telephone number (MTN) and $5.00 for each additional line; and
  • a six-month package consisting of a one-time non-recurring charge of $34.75 for each MTN and $12.50 for each additional line.


Bell Canada submitted that the one-month-free ROC service is still available for residential customers who do not require a longer period during which calls are referred.


Bell Canada filed an imputation test in support of its application.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission notes that in Market trial for Reference of calls service, Telecom Order CRTC 2003-372, 8 September 2003, it approved Bell Canada's market trial for residential ROC service. The Commission also notes that Bell Canada's proposal to assign residential ROC service to the basic residential sub-basket is consistent with its determination in Regulatory framework for second price cap period, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-34, 30 May 2002.


The Commission finds that the imputation test is satisfactory.


The Commission approves Bell Canada's application. The revisions take effect as of 17 May 2004.
