Re: Bell Canada Part VII Application concerning TELUS' Carrier Access Tariff 21462, Item 210 - ADSL Access to Individual Line Service

Dear Mr. Grieve:  

On 9 March 2006 , the Commission received an application from Bell Canada pursuant to Part VII of the CRTC Telecommunications Rules of Procedures requesting, among other things, the reclassification of TELUS Communications Company's (TCC's) Carrier Access Tariff (CAT) 21462, Item 210 - ADSL Access to Individual Line service, to a Category I Competitor service.

With respect to this application, Commission staff is requesting TCC to provide comprehensive answers to the attached interrogatories, including any supporting information, by 9 October 2006 .  

Yours sincerely,

Yvan Davidson
Senior Manager
Competitor Services and Costing

1.  Using detailed technical diagrams and descriptive notes, explain how TCC is providing its CAT 21462, Item 210 - ADSL Access to Individual Line Service to co-located ADSL service providers.

2.  Referring to the response to question 1 above and Bell Canada's submission provided in Figure 1 on page 2 of its application dated 9 March 2006, comment on whether TCC's CAT 21462, Item 210 - ADSL Access to Individual Line Service offers essentially the same functionality as the Loop Administration and Support tariff element of Bell Canada's General Tariff 6716, Item 5400 - ADSL Access service.   If these two services differ in the functionalities being offered, describe these differences.

3.  Pursuant to Part VII application by Bell Canada concerning TELUS Communications Company's ADSL Access to Individual Line Service , Telecom Decision CRTC 2006-55, 8 September 2006, provide a revised cost study for TCC's CAT 21462, Item 210 - Access to Individual Line Service, and provide all supporting cost study methodology and assumptions (e.g., plant life estimates, unit costs of major plant resources, etc.).
