Dear Ms. Griffin-Muir:

RE: Provincial Tel’s request to consolidate two local interconnection regions in Manitoba

Commission staff considers that additional information is necessary for the Commission to make a determination regarding the above-noted application.

As such, MTS Allstream Inc. is to submit responses to the enclosed interrogatories (see Appendix 1) with the Commission no later than 1 March 2010.

Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, and not merely sent, by that date.

Yours sincerely,

Original sgined by
