Service Agreement, less (b) the present value of reservation revenue that would be

collected if the capacity were resold for the remainder of the term, as determined by

the higher of: (i) the average reservation rate for capacity awarded over the prior

twelve (12) month period utilizing the Capacity Release, ROFR or Bid Solicitation

mechanisms for the applicable path(s)for terms of longer than twelve (12) months, or

(ii) such other mutually agreed upon mitigation value.
