1.         The Commission is issuing a correction to Table 3 of Appendix 3 to Billing practices for wholesale residential high-speed access services, Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2011-703, 15 November 2011. Specifically, the Commission is correcting the definition of the initialism “BTS” in the fourth row of Table 3.

2.         For ease of reference, the fourth row of Table 3 is reproduced in its entirety below (the change is highlighted in bold italics). This revised row replaces the fourth row of Table 3 of Appendix 3 to the original decision.

Bell companies

Access service charge – proposed costs for cross-connect work at remote use a vendor fee charged by Bell Technical Solutions (BTS)

Use time estimate and labour unit cost instead of vendor fee to develop cost

Proposed cost estimate is significantly higher than that of other ILECs for the same work and is deemed unreasonable. The revised cost is based on an approach used by other ILECs to estimate associated remote work costs. Further refer to section III(vi), ILEC-specific service charge costing issues, above.
