Re: Bell Aliant, Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada - Application to review and vary Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-255

By letter dated 28 May 2010, Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (Bell Aliant) and Bell Canada (collectively, the Bell companies) filed an application pursuant to Section 62 of the Telecommunications Act and Part VII of the CRTC Telecommunications Rules of Procedure.  In their application, the companies requested that the Commission review and vary Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada – Applications to introduce usage-based billing and other changes to Gateway Access Services, Telecom Decision CRTC 2010-255, 6 May 2010.

The Bell companies also proposed an accelerated process with regard to comments from other parties and their reply to those comments.

By letters dated 1 June 2010, MTS Allstream Inc. and Execulink Telecom Inc. each requested that the Commission reject the Bell companies’ proposal for an accelerated process to give parties a sufficient opportunity to prepare their comments.

Commission staff considers that the standard Part VII application process is appropriate in the circumstances.  Accordingly, interested persons may submit comments with regard to

the Bell companies’ application by 28 June 2010.  The Bell companies may file their reply by 8 July 2010.

Documents to be filed and served in accordance with the above process are to be received, not merely sent, by the dates indicated.
