Business Wire

SAN PEDRO GARZA GARCIA, Mexico -- March 11, 2013

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.
