Dear Sirs:

Re: TekSavvy Solutions Inc. and Yak Home Phone Corp. - Application requesting certain relief regarding Wholesale Local Service and Features provided by Bell Aliant Regional Communications Limited Partnership and Bell Canada

On 4 January 2010, the Commission received the above-mentioned Part VII application by TekSavvy Solutions Inc. and Yak Home Phone Corp.

In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications applications, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-11, 7 December 2006, the Commission stated that it would categorize Part VII applications into two types:  Type 1 applications that generally do not involve multiple parties or raise significant policy issues and Type 2 applications that do involve multiple parties and/or raise significant policy issues

The Commission also adopted the following service standards for Part VII applications:

The Commission stated that it would inform applicants, by letter, within 10 days of the end of the comment period for applications, whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and the applicable service standard.

Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application.  Accordingly, the Commission expects to issue an interim or final determination within four months of the close-of-record.

Yours sincerely,

Original signed by

Mario Bertrand
