Dear Mr. Hennessey:

Re:   Tariff Notice 220 - Links to toll features

On 28 November 2006 , the Commission received an application by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (Bell Aliant) under cover of Tariff Notice 220 (TN 220).   In its application, Bell Aliant proposed to remove charges for links to toll features from its General Tariff item 504 - Megalink Services and item 502 - Digital Exchange Access Service.   Bell Aliant also proposed to add a note to its General Tariff item 503 - Digital Switched Service to clarify that links to toll services are available, and are provided under forborne service arrangements.

Bell Aliant has indicated to Commission staff that it would be providing additional information to clarify its application.

As the record is not yet complete for this filing, the Commission will not be able to render a decision within 10 business days of the date of receipt of TN 220.   The Commission expects to render its decision within 45 business days of the date of receipt of the tariff notice.

Yours sincerely,

'Original signed by S. Bédard '

Suzanne Bédard
Senior Manager, Tariffs
