Telecom Order CRTC 2005-409

  Ottawa, 15 December 2005
  Bell Canada
  Reference: Tariff Notices 787, 787A, and 787B (National Services Tariff)
  Customer specific arrangement


The Commission received an application by Bell Canada, dated 29 August 2003 and amended on 25 September 2003 and 10 November 2005, requesting approval of Tariff Notice 787 (TN 787), under National Services Tariff item 730.3, related to services provided under Customer Specific Arrangement (CSA) contract number P3-175. TN 787 replaced Tariff Notice 763, which had been filed pursuant to Regulatory safeguards with respect to incumbent affiliates, bundling by Bell Canada and related matters, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-76, 12 December 2002.


The CSA filed under TN 787 is a Type 2 CSA consisting of a bundle of Digital Network Access, a General Tariff service and Bandwidth Select, a forborne service. The minimum contract period for this CSA is one year.


Bell Canada filed a revised imputation test at the request of the Commission on 10 November 2005.


No comments were received with respect to this application.
  Commission's analysis and determinations


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 and Call-Net Enterprises Inc. on the basis that a blanket denial of all the Bell Nexxia Inc. 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 revised imputation test results and is satisfied that the costing directives specified in Decision 2003-63 have been applied and that this CSA passes the imputation test.


The Commission has also reviewed the services in this CSA bundle, and is satisfied that the services, rates, and 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 the application by Bell Canada.
