Inter-working agreement


The Commission received an application by Bell Canada, dated 30 July 2004, for approval of the Inter-Working Agreement (the agreement) between Bell Canada and Call-Net Technology Services Inc. (Call-Net).


The proposed agreement sets out the terms and conditions with respect to the delivery of management and operation services to certain customers in Eastern Canada who were formerly being served by one of the affiliates of 360 Corporation and who will now be served by Call-Net and the apportionment revenues earned from these customers for a transitional period.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission notes that Bell Canada has entered into an agreement to acquire certain assets and facilities owned and operated by various affiliates in the 360 Corporation group of companies, including retail customer contracts in Eastern Canada. The Commission also notes that Bell Canada and Call-Net intend to enter an Asset Purchase Agreement pursuant to which Call-Net will acquire these customer contracts.


The Commission further notes that the agreement is to expire in two years or on 31 December 2006, whichever is later. If the parties have not entered into a migration plan with respect to the customer contracts at the conclusion of the term, the agreement may continue for a maximum of six months.


The Commission approves Bell Canada's application.
