Axtel Comments on Mexican Supreme Court Decision Regarding Interconnection Rates

SAN PEDRO GARZA GARCIA, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Axtel, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: AXTELCPO; OTC: AXTLY) ("AXTEL" or "the Company"), a Mexican telecommunications company, today announced the Company's position regarding the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice ("SCJN") decision with respect to the interconnection rates' constitutional cases between AXTEL and Radiomovil Dipsa S.A. de C.V. ("Telcel"), for the 2005-2007 period, and its subsidiary Avantel, S. de R.L. de C.V. ("Avantel") and Telcel for the 2005-2010 period.

As discussions at the SCJN concluded last week, the Company commented that the SCJN resolutions do not represent any financial impact to AXTEL, as the Company already paid the high "calling-party pays" termination rates established by the Federal Telecommunications Commission ("Cofetel") during the 2005-2007 period.

The Company went on to say that as a result of the SCJN decisions, the interconnection rates for AXTEL and Telcel for the 2008-2010 period must be determined by Cofetel based on applicable legislation. The Company will issue additional comments once these rates are resolved by Cofetel.
