Dear Mr. Palmer: 

Re:   Bell Canada 's 2005 Application to Modify its Service Improvement Plan

The Commission is in receipt of Bell Canada 's application dated 1 June 2005 , and amended on 13 June 2005 , regarding Bell Canada 's application to modify the Commission's criteria for the implementation of a project within Bell Canada 's service improvement plan (SIP).   Specifically, Bell Canada proposed that the project for a locality be implemented only if the capital cost for the project does not exceed $62,500 per actual customer. 

Commission staff is of the view that there is merit in Bell Canada 's application.   Accordingly, Commission staff is of the view that it is appropriate for Bell Canada to postpone the expenditures associated with localities where the capital cost for the project exceeds $62,500 per actual customer until further notice. 

Yours sincerely, 

Scott Hutton
Director General, Competition, Costing & Tariffs
