Dear Sirs:

Re: Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership’s Tariff Notice 380 and Bell Canada’s Tariff Notice 7326

The Commission received tariff notice applications by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada (collectively, the Bell companies) on 12 September 2011 seeking approval of proposed revisions to Access Service Tariffs, Item 110 - Co-Location Arrangements for Interconnecting Canadian Carriers and Digital Subscriber Line Service Providers (DSLSPs). Specifically, the Bell companies proposed monthly rate increases to their co-location power rate elements for 48 Volt DC power, 120 Volt AC power, and 120 Volt AC power with generator backup, in their operating territories of Ontario and Québec.

In order to assess the reasonableness of the proposed revised rates, Commission staff has posed interrogatories pertaining to the co-location power cost studies used to support the Bell companies’ applications. Accordingly, the Bell companies are to provide responses to the attached interrogatories and file them with the Commission by 17 October 2011.
Accordingly, comments by parties may be filed by 26 October 2011, and reply comments may be filed by the Bell companies by 2 November 2011.

Documents to be filed and served in accordance with the above process are to be received, not merely sent, by the date indicated. Copies of the documents should also be sent to

Yours sincerely,

Original signed by
