Dear Madam/Sir:

Re:  Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership Tariff Notice 380 and Bell Canada Tariff Notice 7326 – Requests for information

On 12 September 2011, the Commission received applications by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada (collectively, the Bell companies) under cover of Tariff Notices 380 and 7326, respectively, in which the Bell companies proposed revised monthly co-location power rates.  By letter dated 14 October 2011, the Commission established further process in order to allow parties to pose interrogatories to the Bell companies.  On 17 October 2011, the Bell companies responded to interrogatories posed by Commission staff.  On 10 November 2011, the Bell companies responded to interrogatories posed by parties.

Commission staff notes that further requests for information may be appropriate, in order to permit a full assessment of the Bell companies’ proposed rates.  In light of the foregoing, Commission staff suspends the timelines for the filing of comments and reply comments set out in the staff letter dated 14 October 2011. With respect to these deadlines, Commission staff will shortly issue a revised letter incorporating revised filing dates.

Yours sincerely,
