Bell Canada urges CRTC to refrain from price regulation of VoIP

Files joint submission with Aliant, SaskTel and Telebec.

OTTAWA, June 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Radio-television and
Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) should refrain from regulating prices for
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services offered by Canada's established
phone companies, according to a joint submission being filed today by Aliant,
Bell Canada, SaskTel and Telebec.

'What we are opposed to are rules that stand in the way of delivering
competitively-priced services to customers' said Lawson Hunter, Executive Vice
President, Bell Canada Enterprises. 'However, we do support social regulation
such as access to 9-1-1 service and rights to privacy rules to the extent that
these protect customers and the public interest.'
