The parties agree to delete sections 9, 10 & 11 of the Quotation in their entirety and to replace them with the following: "9. CAPACITY PLANNING: 9.1 We use commercially reasonable efforts to reduce Network costs through numerous means such as volume purchase agreements, more efficient network designs, and the receipt of off-setting compensation. Once per quarter, the parties will review network usage, costs, customer commitment and pricing to evaluate in good faith whether to reduce the Roaming Analog Hourly Rate. 9.2 For purposes of capacity planning, you agree to provide best estimate monthly rolling ninety (90) day usage forecasts on a city by city basis. In addition, you agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide us with advance information as to your marketing programs that will materially affect future usage. 9.3 You agree to provide GTEI with at least 90 days prior written notification of any intent to significantly reduce usage on a single or group of local access numbers. Beginning January 1, 2000, should a significant (more than 20%) reduction of usage occur for a given access number from one calendar month (the "Base Month") to the next calendar month, to the extent directly due to the actions of NetZero and not as a result of decreased usage by NetZero subscribers or any other factor, without such prior notification, GTEI shall charge NetZero at the then current Analog Hourly Rate for 50% of the reduced number of hours. The reduced number of hours shall be calculated as the difference between the actual usage in a month and the usage during the Base Month, and shall apply for up to ninety days (but shall not apply if adequate notice as described above is given or if the usage increases so that the usage is not more than 20% below the usage in the Base Month). The parties ---------------------------- [***] Confidential treatment has been requested for the bracketed portions.

GTE does not warrant that the final design shall meet all of their design suggestions. Should GTE not meet the September 15, 1999, and failure to meet such date is not due on part to Customer, GTE shall reduce the Hourly Rate for services by [***] until such time as the service is delivered." 11. Year 2000 Compliance. The "Year 2000 Problem" refers to the potential inability of some computer software to appropriately treat date-related information or functions involving dates of December 31, 1999 and thereafter. GTEI represents that is has made and will continue to make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the services it provides under this Agreement will not be materially impaired by the Year 2000 Problem, provided, however, that Client acknowledges that GTEI is an integrator of systems and services provided by other entities, and GTEI cannot guarantee that third party products will function without adverse effect from the Year 2000 Problem. GTEI will periodically inform Client of the steps GTEI is taking to ensure against adverse effects on the GTEI services caused by the Year 2000 Problem through either direct communications or updates on GTE's web-site, and agrees to inform Client promptly in writing of any material risk of which it becomes aware that GTES's services will be materially affected by the Year 2000 Problem."
