Dear Sirs:

RE: File # 8662-C182-201202324 - Canadian Network Operators Consortium Inc.
Part 1 Application to Review and Vary Telecom Regulatory Policy 2011-703
and Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2011-704 - Request to extend process deadlines

The Commission is in receipt of a letter, dated 30 July 2012, from Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada (collectively, the Companies) requesting an extension to the current filing date, of 3 August 2012 for submission of the Companies' responses to requests for information addressed to them by Commission staff in a letter dated 13 July 2012.  The Companies submitted that, due to the absence of critical resources, they will not be able to complete their responses by the stipulated due date and seek approval for an extension of the filing date to 21 August 2012.

On 31 July 2012, the Commission received a request from Canadian Network Operators Consortium Inc. (CNOC), requesting an extension to the filing date for comments regarding the Companies’ interrogatory responses to 5 September 2012.  CNOC also cited a shortage of critical resources as the basis for its request.

Commission staff considers that the extensions requested by the Companies and CNOC are appropriate.  Accordingly, the remaining process dates, set out in the 13 July 2012 Commission staff letter are revised as follows:

The above material must be received, not merely sent, by this date.  Copies of the documents should also be sent to

Yours sincerely,

‘Original signed by T. Vilmansen for Y. Davidson’
