Bell got caught in a lie on CBC Market Place April 6, 2012 when Bell told CBC that the Touch-Tone fee is mandated by the CRTC. After indepth investigation, the CBC reported back that the CRTC DOES NOT require Bell to charge for Touch-Tone. See the video below; as well, Bell's response: Touch-Tone Busted
Sortof. It is a fee that Bell asked for permission from the CRTC to charge when Touch Tone was introduced. The fee is part of an approved tariff.
Bell has simply never ASKED the CRTC to rescind the tariff item, and NOT charging it to someone would be against the tariff.
Bell is free to apply to the CRTC to remove the touch tone fee as an approved tariffed service, but why would they? Until then, they have to charge it to everyone, otherwise they're violating tariff.--
