Dear Mr. Palmer:

RE:    Bell Canada Tariff Notice 6945

The Commission received an application by Bell Canada under cover of Tariff Notice 6945, proposing revisions to the company's Access Services Tariff (AST) Item 105 - Local Network Interconnection and Component Unbundling.   The company proposed to withdraw the Type C Local Loops Tariff Item from the AST as it was a redundant service.   The company further noted that its application was in accordance with the Commission's procedure for the destandardization and/or withdrawal of tariffed services set out in New procedures for disposition of applications dealing with the destandardization and/or withdrawal of tariffed services , Telecom Circular CRTC 2005-7, 30 May 2005 (Circular 2005-7).

Commission staff notes that the company did not notify affected customers of its application as required in Circular 2005-7.    In Circular 2005-7, the Commission stated that the applicant must provide adequate notice to each customer affected by its application to destandardize and/or withdraw a particular service, allowing for a 45-day comment period.   The Commission further stated in Circular 2005-7 that the notice to affected customers must include clear and sufficient information as to how an affected customer can participate in the Commission's process, including the date when comments must be received by the Commission.

In view of the above, Commission staff considers the company's application to be incomplete.   Consequently, this file is closed.

Yours sincerely,
