Dear Sirs:


Re: Bell Aliant Tariff Notice 327 and Bell Canada Tariff Notice 7266

The Commission received applications by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada (collectively, the companies), both dated 23 June 2010, in which the companies proposed revisions to their respective General Tariff Item 2234 – Home Phone Complete Package, in order to stop providing the WirelessCare feature for all existing Home Phone Complete Package customers, after 31 August 2010.

The companies are to provide responses to the attached interrogatories by 9 July 2010.

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

Yours sincerely,


Original signed by


Suzanne Bédard
