Commission's analysis and determination


The Commission notes that in Part VII application by Allstream Corp. and Call-Net Enterprises Inc. regarding Bell Canada Type 2 CSAs, Telecom Decision CRTC 2005-22, 7 April 2005, it denied the Part VII application filed by Allstream Corp. and Call-Net Enterprises Inc. on the basis that a blanket denial of all the Bell Nexxia CSAs would not be appropriate, and that each CSA should be considered individually to determine whether Bell Canada had complied with the requirements set out in Review of Bell Canada's customer-specific arrangements filed pursuant to Telecom Decision 2002-76, Telecom Decision CRTC 2003-63, 23 September 2003 (Decision 2003-63).


The Commission has reviewed the imputation test filed in Bell Canada's application and is satisfied that the costing directives specified in Decision 2003-63 were applied and that the proposed rates pass the imputation test.


The Commission has also reviewed the services in this CSA bundle, and is satisfied that the services, rates, terms and conditions provided are properly identified in the proposed tariff pages and meet the requirements specified in Decision 2003-63.


In light of the above, the Commission approves on a final basis the application by Bell Canada.
