Re:  Process for applications regarding Telecom Decision CRTC 2011-24 – Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada – Monthly recurring rates and service charge rates for unbundled loops in Ontario and Quebec

Dear Madam/Sir:

The Commission has received correspondence from Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada (the Bell companies), dated 3 February 2012, seeking an extension to the procedure set out in the Commission’s correspondence dated 19 January 2012.  Under their proposal, the Bell companies would file their responses to interrogatories on 13 February 2012.  The Bell companies submitted that the absence of critical resources and the need for more time to collect the data requested made the extension necessary.

Commission staff considers that the information to be provided in response to the interrogatories is vital to the assessment of the appropriate revised unbundled loop rates that are the subject of these review and vary applications.

In the circumstances, the Commission agrees to grant an extension for responses to interrogatories and revised evidence to 13 February 2012.  Comments on the Bell companies’ responses may be filed by 20 February 2012 and the Bell companies may file reply comments by 22 February 2012.

Consistent with the guidelines set out in Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-959, copies of comments and interrogatory responses are to be served on parties to the proceeding that led to Telecom Decision 2011-24.

Yours truly,

‘Original signed by Y. Davidson’
