to pay part or all of the amount of any bill for service in

accordance with Section 14 of the General Terms and Conditions.

BLUEWATER will waive the creditworthiness requirement on a non-

discriminatory basis for Replacement Customers and permit them to

submit bids, if the Releasing Customer provides BLUEWATER with a

guarantee or other form of credit assurance in form and substance

satisfactory to BLUEWATER of all financial obligations of the

Replacement Customer with respect to the capacity being released by

Releasing Customer prior to the commencement of service to the

service represented by the capacity release.
