Dear Mr. Maksimow:

Re:   Associated with MTS Alstream Tariff Notice No. 581

On 13 March 2006 , the Commission received an application by MTS Allstream Inc. under cover of Tariff Notice 581, in which the company proposed an addition to General Tariff Item 2250 to introduce a new Residence Service Bundle.

The company is requested to provide its response to the question below by 31 March 2006 .

1.      In Telecom Decision CRTC 2005-27, Review of price floor safeguards for retail tariffed services and related issues , 29 April 2005 (Decision 2005-27), the Commission indicated that, when filing applications for approval of general tariff bundles, the ILECs must demonstrate that the revenues from a bundle would equal or exceed the cost of all service elements which make up the bundle.

Indicate whether or not the company would be prepared to offer the proposed Residence Service Bundle solely without the condition that the company's customers must have the company as its PIC.   If so, the company is requested to file amended tariff pages.   If not, the company is requested to file an imputation test for the proposed Residence Service Bundle that includes the revenues and costs of long distance service pursuant to Decision 2005-27.

The Commission expects to render a decision on this application within 45 business days of the filing date.

Yours sincerely,

'Original signed by S. Bédard '
