Dear Ms. Slywchuk:

Re: Tariff Notice 319A

On 10 March 2006 , Télébec, Société en commandite filed Tariff Notice 319A and an economic study.   The company proposed to amend two pages of its General Tariff that had been included in its initial filing of 30 May 2005 (TN 319), by increasing the service charge related to the high-speed service provider interface from $600 that was previously approved on an interim basis by the Commission in Telecom Order CRTC 2005-224 - 10 June 2005 to $1,200.

On 24 March 2006 , the Commission advised Télébec of its intention to send it interrogatories in regard to TN 319A.

Please reply to the attached interrogatories.

Your replies should be filed no later than 11 April 2006 .

Yours truly,

'Original signed by S. Bédard '

(b) identify the cost elements included in the service charge category for the high-speed service provider interface in the same format as Table 6.5-1;

(c)  separately, provide details of the unit costs associated with the provision of high-speed service provider interface service such as: the number of hours required (per personnel category, such as "installation", "administrative", etc.), and per-hour labour costs, and provide the assumptions used to determine these costs.

2.  In article 7.9.3 of its tariff, Télébec indicates a service charge of $1200 for the high-speed service provider interface and $225 for high-speed access services.   Specify the terms and conditions under which these service charges would apply (per request, per line, per month, per customer, etc.).
