Telecom Order CRTC 2005-56

  Ottawa, 16 February 2005

Bell West Inc.

  Reference: Tariff Notice 9

Interconnection rates


The Commission received an application by Bell West Inc. (Bell West), dated 15 September 2004, to revise the following General Tariff items in order to reflect the lower interconnection rates approved for the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) pursuant to Regulatory framework for second price cap period, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-34, 30 May 2002.
  • Part B - Interconnection with Local Exchange Carriers
    item 201, Compensation for Traffic Termination
  • Part C - Interconnection with Interexchange Service Providers (IXSPs)
    item 302, Trunk-side Access
    item 303, Network Announcements for Customers of Disconnected IXSPs with   Truck-side Access
    item 304, Bulk Transfer of End-Customer Base Between IXSPs
    item 305, Billing and Collection Service
  • Part D - Interconnection with Wireless Service Providers (WSPs)
    item 402, Trunk-side Access
    item 403, Line-side Access
  • Part E - Other Interconnection Services
    item 501, Call Routing - Location Routing Number (LRN) Absent


Bell West requested that the rates take effect as of 1 June 2004.


In Local Competition, Telecom Decision CRTC 97-8, 1 May 1997, the Commission determined that it was in the public interest to require competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) to provide interconnection to all IXSPs and WSPs, at terms and conditions that were equivalent to those contained in the ILECs' tariffs. The Commission required all CLECs to file proposed tariffs for interconnection, justifying any departure from the terms and conditions contained in the ILECs' tariffs.


The Commission notes that the proposed rates conform to ILECs rates that were effective 1 June 2004.


Accordingly, the Commission approves on an interim basis Bell West's application. The revisions take effect 1 June 2004.


Bell West is to issue revised tariff pages forthwith to reflect these changes.
