the following terms and conditions, and Customer agrees to accept
Service subject to the specific terms and charges set forth in
the Annexure(s) attached hereto and pursuant to the terms of this
Agreement.

1.    CONFIDENTIALITY: During the Term and for three (3) year
thereafter, neither Party shall disclose any terms of this
Agreement, including pricing, or "Confidential Information" of
the other Party.  For purposes of this Agreement, "Confidential
Information" shall mean information in written or other tangible
form specifically labeled as such when disclosed by a Party. 
Confidential Information transmitted orally shall be identified
as such at the time of its disclosure.  Confidential Information
shall remain the property of the disclosing Party.  A Party
receiving Confidential Information shall: (i) use or reproduce
such information only when necessary to perform this Agreement;
(ii) provide at least the same care to avoid disclosure or 
unauthorized use of such information as it provides to protect
its own Confidential Information; (iii) limit access to such
information to its employees or agents who need such information
to perform this Agreement; and (iv) return or destroy all such
information, including copies, after the need for it has expired,
upon request of the disclosing Party, or upon termination of this
Agreement.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
herein, a Party shall be allowed to disclose Confidential
Information pursuant to judicial or governmental order or if
otherwise required to do so by law, provided the other Party is
given prior notice of disclosure and the opportunity to obtain a
protective order if deemed necessary.

2.    TERM: The term of this Agreement shall be a minimum one (1)
year from the last date of signature.  The Agreement shall
continue thereafter, in full force and effect, until canceled by
either party giving sixty (60) days written notice to the other
Party.  Service will be discontinued the first business day of
the third month after such notice of termination.

3.    RELATIONSHIP TO PARTIES: Neither this agreement nor the
provision of Service creates a joint venture, partnership or
agency between STARTEC and Customer.

4.    USE OF NAME AND MARKS: This Agreement confers no right to
use the name, service marks, trademarks, copyrights, patents of
either Party except as expressly provided herein.  Neither Party
shall take any action which would compromise the registered
copyrights or service marks of the other.

5.    LEGAL COMPLIANCE: REMEDIES FOR NON-COMPLIANCE:  Customer
and STARTEC represent and warrant that they have obtained all
licenses, approvals and/or regulatory authority necessary to
operate as contemplated herein.

6.    CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES: Customer shall comply with
STARTEC's network interface procedures when it orders its own
access facilities.  STARTEC agrees to promptly provide Customer
with such network interface procedures.

7.    SERVICE ACTIVATION: STARTEC will use reasonable efforts to
provide Service within thirty (30) days, following execution of
the applicable Annexure(s), or the requested delivery date,
whichever is later.

8.    PRICING.  Pricing is pursuant to the applicable
Annexure(s).  STARTEC reserves the right to change the pricing,
upon fifteen (15) days prior written notice.  Should any unit
price increase more than [CT REQUESTED] during a calendar year,
Customer may terminate this Agreement with thirty (30) days
written notice and without any early termination fee.

9.    PAYMENTS FOR SERVICE:

the invoice shall be past due.  Interest will be charged on
undisputed past due amounts beginning the thirty-first (31st) day
following Customer's receipt of the invoice at a rate equal to
the lesser of eighteen percent(18%) per annum or the maximum rate
allowed by law.

9.3   Customer will provide STARTEC with a valid tax exemption
form to exempt Customer, under applicable law, from taxes that
would otherwise be paid by Customer.  STARTEC will invoice
Customer for taxes (other than income taxes payable by STARTEC)
that are not covered by tax exemption certificate properly filed
with STARTEC.

9.4   If Customer, in good faith, disputes any invoiced amount,
it shall submit to STARTEC within ninety (90) days following
receipt of the invoice written documentation identifying and
substantiating the disputed amount.  If the Parties, in good
faith, cannot resolve the dispute within a reasonable period of
time, then the dispute shall be settled by arbitration pursuant
to Paragraph sixteen (16).

collecting from its customers.  Under no circumstances shall

credit approval by STARTEC.

damages, fines, assessments, penalties and expenses (including
reasonable attorney's fees) resulting from (a) breach of any
provision in this Agreement by Indemnitor, its employees or
agents, arising out of the Indemnitor's performance hereunder.
Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold STARTEC harmless from
and against any and all liabilities, costs, and damages
(including reasonable attorney's fees) resulting from any claim
arising out of libel, slander, or patent or trademark
infringement arising from the combination or use of Service with
Customer provided service or facilities; or Customer's marketing,
advertising, sales or promotional activities.

12.   LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE
LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION

REPAIR, INTERRUPTION, OR RESTORATION, OF ANY SERVICE OR
FACILITIES OFFERED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED AN
AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE CHARGE APPLICABLE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT TO THE
