12.3     Bullet Proof Guarantee. This feature is available only for circuits installed prior to October 1, 1998 at MCI Legacy Company-designated locations, and only for T-1 circuits enrolled prior to the 10th day in the month prior to the outage. Customers subscribing to this feature are guaranteed service restoral, within one minute, in the event of MCI Legacy Company-provided T-1 Digital Access circuit failure. If this timeframe cannot be met, the MCI Legacy Company will provide a credit to the Customer equal to one month's Local Loop charges, after any discounts and taxes, for the affected circuit. The credit will not include Central Office Connection (COC), Access Coordination (AC), ISDN PRI, and associated equipment charges. The monthly credit shall not exceed the discounted monthly recurring charges for the local access circuit. No credits will be provided for non-recurring charges. The credits will only apply when the Customer has reported the outage or interruption to the MCI Legacy Company, and the MCI Legacy Company, in its sole discretion, has verified that the Customer is eligible for the Guarantee.

 

This guarantee does not apply to the following:

 

                  interruptions or outages caused by the Customer;

 

                  in cases where Customer premises equipment is provided by the Customer or any third party;

 

                  during the period of time that the Customer has released the circuit to the MCI Legacy Company for maintenance purposes, rearrangements or other order changes; or,

 

                  when the Customer elects not to release the circuit for testing or repair and continues to use it on an impaired basis. This guarantee does not apply during busy conditions or MCI Legacy Company Network failures.
