File numbers: 8740-B54-201312660, 8740-B2-201312678, Bell Aliant Tariff Notice 456, and Bell Canada Tariff Notice 7404
1. The Commission hereby replaces the summary and paragraphs 3, 13, and 19 of Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada – Monthly payment amount for installation of legacy business Gateway Access Service accesses, Telecom Order CRTC 2014-22, 24 January 2014, with the following summary and paragraphs (changes are in bold italics):
In this order, the Commission approves on a final basis a request by Bell Aliant and Bell Canada to increase the monthly payment amount of the service charge for installing legacy business Gateway Access Service accesses from $1.00 to $1.50 per month per access, under payment option 3 of their tariffs. The Commission also approves CNOC’s request that contractually committed independent service providers be permitted to select a different installation charge payment option for new accesses due to this increase. The Commission denies CNOC’s request that the current $1.00 monthly payment be grandfathered for existing business accesses. Therefore, the revised business monthly payment amount of $1.50 applies to all existing and new accesses for independent service providers under payment option 3.
3. The Commission received applications from the Bell companies, dated 12 September 2013, proposing to increase the monthly service charge payment (monthly payment) for business accesses under option 3 to $1.50, to match the existing monthly payment for residential accesses. The Bell companies filed 12 months of data to support the proposed increase. The Commission approved the Bell companies’ applications on an interim basis in Telecom Order CRTC 2013-516, 26 September 2013, with an effective date of 28 October 2013.
13. In light of the above, the Commission approves on a final basis the Bell companies’ proposed increase, to $1.50 per month per business access, in the monthly payment under option 3, effective 28 October 2013.
19. In light of the above, the Commission denies CNOC’s request to grandfather the current $1.00 business GAS monthly payment for existing accesses under option 3. Therefore, as of 28 October 2013, the revised business monthly payment amount of $1.50 applies to all existing and new accesses for independent service providers under option 3.
