NEW YORK & RIO DE JANEIRO -- March 18, 2014

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm
of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT), today announced its
participation as Platinum Sponsor at the Capacity Latam Conference in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil. At a time when Brazil is anticipating an unprecedented
bandwidth demand as the host of two of the most popular sporting events in the
world and Latin America is making a concerted effort to lower costs and expand
access, NTT Com is proud to provide insight and leadership on the key issues
shaping the wholesale IP transit industry in the region.

This conference, one of the largest of its kind for the Latin American
wholesale telecommunications sector, is expected to draw more than 400
industry leaders from 150 service providers and carriers. Conference sessions
are scheduled for March 18-19. This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the
Capacity Latam Conference.

On Tuesday March 18, Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of NTT Com’s
Global IP Network (GIN) business unit at NTT America, will speak as part of
the keynote panel “Addressing Changing Market Dynamics and Developing
Competitive Strategies in Latin American Wholesale” about the challenges and
opportunities global carriers are facing in the region.

“With all of the evolving market dynamics in Latin America and the number of
devices and customers connected to IP networks growing exponentially, it is
imperative that service providers develop sustainable commercial solutions and
innovative strategies if they want to succeed,” said Mr. Wheeler. “Having an
established high-capacity infrastructure, more than sufficient capital
resources and industry expertise are crucial to meet the growing demand for
Internet services,” Mr. Wheeler added.

Mr. Wheeler’s comments reflect NTT Com’s strategy in the region. Since rolling
out a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Sao Paulo in 2011, NTT Com has worked with
Internet service providers, multinational enterprises and Internet-centric
businesses to connect them to international markets through its top-ranked
Tier-1 Global IP Network.

As Brazil prepares for the FIFA World Cup in a few months and the Summer
Olympic Games in 2016, global service providers are essential in helping to
meet Internet data needs. These events will generate large volumes of video
content originating in Brazil and streamed out around the world. Carriers will
need to find the right balance between having adequate infrastructure to serve
their customers while not overbuilding capacity that will go unused after the
events.

In the meantime, Mr. Wheeler said that NTT Com will continue to evaluate
possible expansions in Latin America over the next few years, investing in
infrastructure and building long-term relationships with its customers.
