Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 240 / Friday, December 13, 2019 / Notices system ‘‘has been remarkably successful in promoting market competition in its broader forms that are most important to investors and listed companies.’’ 33 As noted above, the Exchange recognizes that removing the LCN 10 Gb connection from its Price List would eliminate a connectivity option previously available to Users. Indeed, the proposed change may negatively impact the Exchange’s revenues, since Current Users may opt to re-tailor their systems to reduce the number of connections, move to 10 Gb IP network connections, re-tailor become Hosted Customers, or cross-connect to another User. Such choices, any of which would reduce revenue, may be more attractive to Users as a consequence of the change. Nonetheless, the Exchange believes that the change is necessary and appropriate because, as a consequence of the manufacturer’s declaration of the First Switch’s EOL, if the Exchange did not eliminate the LCN 10 Gb connections, the Exchange’s ability to provide support or supplies to Users that have such connections would be compromised. Not being able to resolve connectivity issues related to First Switches or even replace them would make the Exchange’s compliance with Regulation SCI suboptimal. When the inevitable hardware or software issues involving the First Switch arose, the Exchange would not have the manufacturer resources available to solve connectivity issues or replace switches. Users’ connections to the Exchange could be compromised or wholly cut off. At the same time, if a User requested a new or replacement LCN 10 Gb connection, the Exchange would not be able to obtain one. It would be contrary to the protection of investors and the public interest if the Exchange were to continue to offer a connectivity option that it could not support, or if Users were compromised or wholly unable to use their connectivity to connect to the Exchange. For the reasons described above, the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change reflects this competitive environment. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES C.
