Telecom Order CRTC 2004-311

  Ottawa, 10 September 2004

Bell Canada

  Reference: Tariff Notice  6828

Intra-exchange and inter-exchange distance charges


The Commission received an application by Bell Canada, dated 30 July 2004, to revise General Tariff item 950, Local Channels, and item 3750, Monthly Distance Charges or Rentals for Inter-exchange Channels and the Associated Local Channels, in order to change the rates for Schedule 3 and 3A channels.


Bell Canada stated that the proposal would make these rates the same as the rates for the local portion of Schedule 3 and 3A interexchange channels in tariff item 3750.


Bell Canada also stated that the existing stand-alone Schedule 3 and 3A rates in item 950 are distance sensitive whereas the local portion of the interexchange channels is a flat rate of $16.50 per month. Bell Canada further stated that the proposed change is revenue neutral, involves a small number of customers and would significantly reduce billing complexity.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission approves Bell Canada's application. The revisions take effect as of 1 October 2004.
