Dear Mr. Armstrong:

RE:   Tariff Notices Nos. 97 and 97A - Destandardization and Withdrawal of Northern Radio Telephone Service

The Commission received an application by Saskatchewan Telecommunications Inc. (SaskTel) under cover of Tariff Notice 97 and 97A, dated 13 October 2005 and 22 December 2005, respectively, in which SaskTel proposed to destandardize and withdraw its Northern Radio Telephone Service (NRTS) because of obsolete and unreliable technology

By letter, dated 7 July 2006 , SaskTel requested the Commission to defer consideration of its application to 31 December 2006 because of ongoing negotiations for the transition of the NRTS service to a local community organization.

In the circumstances, the Commission will resume consideration of this application when it receives notification from SaskTel of the outcome of its negotiations.

Yours sincerely,

'Original signed by S. Bédard '

Senior Manager, Tariffs
