Telecom Order CRTC 2006-205

  Ottawa, 9 August 2006

Revisions to Bell Aliant's and Bell Canada's tariffs

  Reference: Bell Communications TNs 8, 9, 10 and 12 and Bell Canada TN 6961


The Commission received four applications by Bell Canada, filed between 15 June and 27 June 2006, under cover of Bell Communications Tariff Notices (TNs) 8, 9, 10, and 12, proposing revisions to Bell Communications' General Tariff and Special Facilities Tariff.


The Commission also received an application by Bell Canada, dated 19 June 2006, under cover of TN 6961, proposing revisions to its General Tariff. Bell Canada noted that the proposed revisions corresponded to similar provisions in the equivalent tariffs proposed for Bell Communications in TN 8.


Bell Canada noted in its applications that the name for the new income trust had not yet been finalized but that the interim name was "Bell Communications". Bell Canada further noted that it would notify the Commission if and when a different name was chosen, and proposed to amend any approved tariff pages at that time, as required.


The Commission approved, on an interim basis, Bell Canada's applications in Telecom Order CRTC 2006-172, 6 July 2006 (Order 2006-172). The Commission noted in Order 2006-172 that approval was conditional on the completion of the formation of the income trust.


The Commission received no comments with respect to these applications.


By letter dated 10 July 2006, Bell Canada informed the Commission that the formal name of the income trust entity, for which tariffs were filed under the provisional name of "Bell Communications", would be Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (Bell Aliant), and that the establishment of Bell Aliant was completed on 7 July 2006.


Given that the Commission was informed of the formation of Bell Aliant pursuant to Order 2006-172 and that the comment period has elapsed, the Commission approves on a final basis Bell Canada's applications.
