extent (1) such Customer's MDDO or MDRO, as applicable, is

less than its MDQ, or (2) such Customer requests that an

equivalent quantity of existing MDDO or MDRO, as applicable,

under Customer's executed service agreements be designated

as Section 14.9 Firm Capacity. Any capacity awarded under

this Section 14.10 for a new firm service shall be

designated as MDDO, or MDRO, as applicable, in the

applicable exhibit of each requesting Customer's executed

service agreement(s) under such new firm service, provided

such Customer's aggregate MDDO or MDRO, as applicable, does

not exceed its MDQ for such new service.
