File numbers: Bell Communications Tariff Notices 4, 4A, 4B, 4D, and 7

1.      On 1 February 2006, BCE Inc. (BCE) announced its intention to form a new regional income trust, Bell Communications (now Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership), that would offer wireline, legacy data, and Internet services in certain parts of Bell Canada’s territory in Ontario and Quebec. BCE indicated that there would be no changes to the services offered to Bell Canada’s customers, or to the terms and rates applicable to those services, as a result of this corporate restructuring.
