               5.1.1  Overage Rates:  The 150 hour plan represents individual
                                          -------------            ----------
                      user activity, (i.e., the overage fee is applied when any
                      ----
                      individual user exceeds 150 hours). If the total hours of
                      access by each individual Base Rate User exceeds one-
                      hundred-fifty (150) hours/user, then the Base Rate for
                      that user will be adjusted upwards by the corresponding
                      rate listed above for each hour, or partial hour, that the
                      user exceeds 150 hours / user. Overage usage is billed to
                      the customer, not end user, on a calendar month.

                      The 150 Hour plan is based on individual user hours. The
                      number of users using 150 hours or more of network access
                      must not exceed [*****] of the customer's active user
                      base. In the event the number of users utilizing 150 or
                      greater hours within a calendar month exceeds [*****] of
                      the customer's active user base, Genuity will surcharge
                      the customer an additional [*****] of the total monthly
                      invoice for each percent, or fraction thereof, that the
                      percentage of such users exceeds [*****].


                      [For example, if 150 users out of a total 1000 valid
                      registered users accesses the DiaLinx Network for 160
                      hours, under this plan, the total invoice for the month
                      would be [*****] Calculations: Base Rates would be
                                       ------------
                      [*****]. Overage Rates would be [*****]. The invoice sub-
                      total is [*****]. This example assumes no other charges
                      are incurred (ie No 800 or International charges). Since
                      [*****] of the user base used more than 100 hours, and
                      Genuity charges an additional [*****] of the invoice, for
                      each [*****] the surcharge on the invoice will be [*****].
                      Thus, the total invoice will be [*****].

               5.1.2  800/888 Charge: In addition to any other applicable
                      --------------
                      charges under section 4.0, you will be charged the 800/888
                      charge for each hour that an End User accesses the Network
                      via the 800/888 access number. You may request that the
                      800/888 service be disabled at any time.

                 MASTER AGREEMENT FOR INTERNETWORKING SERVICES

The Master Agreement for Internetworking Services ("Master Agreement") by and
between Genuity Solutions Inc. ("we") and Netpliance, Inc. ("you") dated
_________________________ is hereby modified as set forth below. To the extent
that there are any conflicts between the terms of this Amendment No. 1 and the
terms of the Master Agreement, this Amendment No. 1 shall control.

Section 10. Termination. The last sentence in Section 10 is deleted and replaced
with the following provisions: "We reserve the right, but assume no obligation,
to suspend performance if you are more than 30 days overdue in payments or if,
in our reasonable judgment, you have violated Section 9, provided, however, we
will not suspend performance for non-payment unless you have failed to cure such
delinquency within 5 business days after receiving written notification from us,
identifying the amount overdue. In the event of a violation of Section 9, we
will exercise the right to suspend performance only as to the end-user(s) in
violation, and not as to you, unless we reasonably believe you are a knowing
participant in the violation."

Section 13. Miscellaneous. The words "Commonwealth of Massachusetts" are changed
to "State of New York".

Section 14. Order of Precedence. A new Section is added, entitled "Order of
Precedence," which reads as follows: "To the extent that any Service Schedule
specifically conflicts with the Master Agreement, the Service Schedule will
control. To the extent that any Service Quotation specifically conflicts with
the Service Schedule or the Master Agreement, the Service Schedule or Master
Agreement, as the case may be, will control, unless the Service Quotation
specifically refers to the conflicting verbiage in the Service Schedule or
Master Agreement, and specifically states that as to such verbiage the Service
Quotation will supersede and control."

Each individual executing this Amendment No. 1 for and on behalf of a party
represents that he or she is fully authorized to do so.

the Service Period expires without being renewed in writing or cancelled, then

parties cannot be agreed upon.

                                AMENDMENT NO. 1
                                      TO
                     SERVICE SCHEDULE FOR DIALINX SERVICES

The Service Schedule for DiaLinx Services "(Service Schedule") by and between
Genuity Solutions Inc. ("we") and Netpliance, Inc. ("you") dated 7/31/00 is
hereby modified as set forth below. To the extent that there are any conflicts
between the terms of this Amendment No. 1 and the terms of the Service Schedule,
this Amendment No. 1 shall control.

Section 3.   Renewal.  The verbiage in the Service Schedule is deleted in its
entirety and replaced with the following:  "We encourage you to contact us by
sending an inquiry via email to: renew@genuity.com prior to the expiration of
                                 -----------------
the then-current Service Period to renew the DiaLinx Service for an additional
term of one (1) year or greater.  If we notify you of upcoming expiration at
least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Service Period, and you take no
action to renew or cancel your Service, your Service Period will automatically
be renewed for one (1) year.  If we fail to notify you of upcoming expiration at
least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Service Period, and you take no
action to renew or cancel your Service, your Service Period will automatically
be renewed on a mouth-to-month basis, cancelable by either party on thirty (30)
days prior written notice.  Renewal will be at your existing pricing and Minimum
Customer Commitment, unless we provide you with notice of a price increase at
least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the then-current Service
Period.  Volume commitment ramps apply only to the initial Service Period."

Section 4.   Minimum Customer Commitment. The last sentence of this section is
deleted and replaced with the following: "In the event that you terminate your
use of the DiaLinx Service, the following liquidated damages will become
immediately and payable:  fifty percent (50%) of your Minimum Customer
Commitment for the next twelve (12) months of your remaining Service Period, and
twenty-five percent (25%) of your Minimum Customer Commitment for any additional
Service Period remaining."

Section 9.   Regulatory Changes.  The following provision is added after the end
of the first sentence of this Section:  "If allowed by applicable federal or
state regulations, and if such price changes are wholly within the control of
Genuity Solutions, Inc., we will provide you with thirty (30) days advance
written notice before any such price changes go into effect."

Section 10.  Compliance with Laws and Content Responsibility.  In the first
sentence, second line, the word "knowingly" is inserted between "not" and "use."
In the third sentence, beginning in line 16, is deleted and replaced with the
following provisions:  "We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the DiaLinx
Service (or any portion thereof) in the event that we believe that your use (or
any of your end user's use) of the DiaLinx Service may be in violation of this
section, provided, however, we will exercise said right only as to the end-
user(s) in violation, and not as to you, unless we reasonably believe you are a
knowing participant in the violation.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve
the right to suspend or terminate the DiaLinx Service immediately for violations
of this section if required to do so by law enforcement or regulatory
authorities."

Section 13.  Disputes.  This section is deleted in its entirety.

                                                                    Rev. 7-28-00

Section 14.  Governing Law.  The words "Commonwealth of Massachusetts" are
deleted and replaced by "State of New York".

Section 19.  Assignment.  A new section entitled "19.  Assignment" is added, to
read as follows:  "Neither party may assign this Service Schedule without the
prior written consent of the other party, which consent will not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may, without your prior
written consent, assign this Service Schedule, to a Genuity affiliate or to any
entity that succeeds to the business of Genuity in connection with a merger or
acquisition.  With regard to any assignment that requires the other's consent,
if consent is refused, then at your request Genuity will continue to provide
Services hereunder during a ninety (90) day transition period.  If Genuity
refuses to consent to your assignment, you will be excused from paying any
termination charges, but you will be liable for any charges that have accrued
under the Agreement prior to the effective date of the termination."

Each individual executing this Amendment No. 1 for and on behalf of a party
represents that he or she is fully authorized to do so.
