Bell Canada

  Reference: Bell Canada Tariff Notice 870 (National Services Tariff)

Customer Specific Arrangement


The Commission received an application by Bell Canada, dated 8 December 2005, requesting approval of Tariff Notice 870 (TN 870) under National Services Tariff item 720.87, related to services provided under Customer Specific Arrangement (CSA) contract number P3-130. Bell Canada indicated that this filing replaces the tariff for the customer filed as part of Tariff Notice 767 under item 720.87, which had been filed pursuant to Regulatory safeguards with respect to incumbent affiliates, bundling by Bell Canada and related matters, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-76, 12 December 2002.


Bell Canada submitted that this was a type 2 CSA as defined in Bundling framework developed for customer-specific arrangements, Order CRTC 2000-425, 19 May 2000.


Bell Canada filed a revised imputation test on 20 January 2006, at the request of the Commission.


The Commission received no comments with respect to this application.


The Commission finds that the proposed service is a type 2 CSA, consisting of a bundle of the following services: Digital Access Services, Business Primary Exchange (Local) Service, and Long Distance and Toll-Free Services.


The Commission has reviewed the revised imputation test results and is satisfied that the costing directives specified in Review of Bell Canada's customer-specific arrangements filed pursuant to Telecom Decision 2002-76, Telecom Decision CRTC 2003-63, 23 September 2003 (Decision 2003-63), were properly applied and that the proposed rates pass the imputation test.


The Commission has also reviewed the services in this CSA bundle, and is satisfied that the services, rates, terms and conditions provided are properly identified in the proposed tariff pages and meet the requirements specified in Decision 2003-63.


In Bell Canada - Ex parte application, Telecom Order CRTC 2004-428, 17 December 2004 (Order 2004-428), the Commission identified safeguards regarding the automatic renewal of a CSA and/or services within a CSA that should be included in tariff pages. Consistent with Order 2004-428, the Commission considers that such safeguards are reflected in the tariff pages associated with TN 870.


In light of the above, the Commission approves the application by Bell Canada.


Bell Canada is to issue tariff pages forthwith.
