RE:  Tariff Notice 823 – Updated 9-1-1 tariff provisions for Hosted IP Telephony and SIP Trunking (Regional) Services

Dear Mr. Gauvin:

On 7 November 2019, the Commission received an application from Bell MTS, under Tariff Notice 823, requesting approval to revise its General Tariff CRTC 24001 - Item 1988, Hosted IP Telephony Services and Item 2264 – SIP Trunking (Regional) Service, in order to align them with the 9-1-1 calling provisions that exist in the company’s approved tariff in the Bell Canada Ontario and Québec operating territory.

Commission staff is continuing its analysis of this application.

Consequently, this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, will not be approved on an interim basis on the 15th calendar day following receipt. However, the Commission intends to dispose of this application, along with any associated subsequent revisions, within 45 business days of receipt of the filing.
