Re: Bell Canada’s Part 1 Application to Improve the Accessibility of Mobile Telecommunications at Bell Canada – Request for Extension to file responses to requests for further information

Dear Mr. Abbott:

We are writing in response to your letter dated 25 November 2013 that requested an extension for filing with the Commission responses for requests for further information. Your letter states that this extension is required because of the need to consult with external parties and to adequately review the responses.

Commission staff thus amends as follows the dates for steps 6 to 8 of the schedule set out in staff’s letter dated 7 August 2013. The close of record date is now 8 January 2014 for final comments.

6. Responses to requests for further information to be filed with the Commission:
29 November 2013.

7. Information to be provided pursuant to a staff determination: 10 December 2013.

8. Final comments (close of record): 8 January 2014.

Yours sincerely,


Nanao Kachi
Director, Social and Consumer Policy
