           ATX reports sixth consecutive quarter of EBITDA improvement

New York, NY (August 14, 2002) - ATX Communications, Inc. ("ATX" or the
"Company") (Nasdaq: COMM), a leading integrated communications provider, today
announced its operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2002. ATX also
announced that it will be filing the CEO and CFO certifications with respect to
the Company's quarterly report for the quarter ended June 30, 2002 pursuant to
the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

"The successful execution of our business model is evident in our second quarter
financial results, which continue to show positive trends," said Thomas Gravina,
President and CEO. "The strategies we've successfully employed over the past 18
months remain our focus, as they have now produced six consecutive quarters of
EBITDA improvement."

ATX's EBITDA (before corporate expense) of $6.2 million in the second quarter of
2002 compares to a loss of ($7.9) million in the second quarter of 2001. The
second quarter represents the Company's third consecutive EBITDA positive
quarter. The Company generated positive EBITDA results for the first time in the
fourth quarter of 2001, at which time the Company recapitalized approximately
$600 million of debt and preferred stock, and eliminated more than $100 million
of other liabilities and future obligations.

"In July, we finalized our recapitalization, completing the exchange offer that
enabled our stockholders to participate in the direct ownership of the
recapitalized company going forward. Our recapitalization has created a capital
structure that is more favorable than many of our competitors. With the
continued execution of our business model, we plan to capitalize on the
opportunities in the telecom environment by continuing to take market share away
from the incumbent operators. We feel that this is achievable, as we continue to
see strong demand for our voice and data service offerings across all of our
product segments.

"A key factor in our strong financial performance has been our success in
growing our customer base within our most profitable integrated communications
product lines. In the second quarter, we continued to sign substantial new
accounts across a range of industries including media, consumer retail, legal,
insurance and accounting, as well as extend service packages and contracts with
key existing customers. Our customers are benefiting from our comprehensive,
bundled product sets, as well as from our superior customer service. Also, we
continue to find ways to expand our product portfolio through both new product
development and cost-effective infrastructure deployment. For example, we
purchased two fully-equipped switching facilities at a fraction of their
original cost, which will allow us to increase our on-net product offerings in
the Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland and New Jersey markets. Business and
residential communities are responding favorably to these enhanced offerings,
illustrating a clear preference for choice in their communications services, and
indicating continued success and opportunity for our company going forward.

"Now that we have completed our recapitalization and exchange offer
transactions, we are eager to direct more efforts and resources toward our key
operating objectives: continuing to grow our recurring revenues and further
differentiating ourselves and the level of service we deliver to customers. We
expect to continue to establish positive trends as we build a successful

"Our management team, employees, multitude of loyal customers, and stockholders
deserve a tremendous amount of credit for their efforts and commitment. We look
forward to rewarding those efforts by continuing to deliver strong results in
the second half of this year."

The components of EBITDA as defined by the Company are set forth in the results
summarized under the heading "Financial Results." This definition is consistent
across the periods referred to in this release.


In December 2001, CoreComm Limited completed the first phase of a
recapitalization plan in which it exchanged approximately $600 million of debt
and preferred stock for approximately 87% of the equity in ATX Communications,
Inc. In addition, in 2001, the Company eliminated more than $100 million of
other liabilities and future obligations.

The second and final phase of the recapitalization was completed on July 1,
2002, which included an exchange offer to the public stockholders of CoreComm
Limited to receive shares in ATX Communications, Inc. As a result, the former
stockholders of CoreComm Limited now directly own shares of ATX Communications,
Inc. ATX owns 100% of all material business operations, and has approximately
$600 million less debt and preferred stock than CoreComm Limited.

"The closing of the exchange offers marks the culmination of more than a year of
successful operations and corporate recapitalization efforts," said Gravina.
"ATX stands out in the way that it has successfully responded to a difficult
financial environment. In the recapitalization, the Company significantly
strengthened its balance sheet, eliminating approximately $600 million of debt
and preferred stock, while establishing a clear, streamlined corporate structure
that will yield short- and long-term benefits to the business."


ATX continued to focus on its most profitable markets and products, as well as
on executing numerous operating initiatives, which led to significant
improvements in the financial results for the sixth straight quarter. ATX
expects these initiatives to continue to drive positive financial results as it
continuously monitors all areas of its business to drive additional
profitability and revenue growth.

"Our third straight quarter of EBITDA-positive results, along with our six
consecutive quarters of improved profitability and operating efficiencies,
demonstrate our ability to run a productive telecommunications business," said
Gravina. "That includes forging new relationships, effectively servicing and
expanding existing ones, and deploying the appropriate infrastructure and
resources to develop our business."


ATX had the following subscribers as of June 30, 2002:

                                                     June 30, 2002

ATX's revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2002 were attributable to
the following service categories:

                                                     June 30, 2002

(1) Other includes carrier access billing, reciprocal compensation, information
services, wireless and paging.


ATX has significantly improved its profitability through efforts that began in
2001 and continued through the second quarter of 2002. These efficiencies are
reflected in the decrease in ATX's total expenses of more than $146 million on
an annualized basis, as shown in the table below:

                                                         Three months ended

     Total Expenses                       34%          $70,598       $107,175

The improvements shown above have resulted from a variety of measures, several
of which are also expected to generate additional profitability advances during
the remainder of 2002 and going forward. These ongoing initiatives include:
network operations and asset consolidation; higher gross margin for delivery of
telephony services via UNE, UNE-P, and EEL; elimination of products that do not
meet profitability targets; and consolidation of business service and
residential service operations. These initiatives and other general cost
reduction efforts have resulted in headcount reductions, as well as elimination
of expenses related to overhead and general and administrative expenses.

EBITDA is defined as revenue less operating and selling, general and
administrative expenses.


The increase in revenues to $75,209,000 from $73,126,000 is due primarily to
customer acquisition, increased pricing, carrier access billing and reciprocal
compensation. In the three months ended June 30, 2002, the Company billed and
recorded approximately $1,484,000 of revenue that was related to services
provided in prior periods.

Operating costs include direct cost of sales, network costs and salaries and
related expenses of network personnel. Operating costs decreased to $48,758,000
from $57,662,000 due to a decrease in costs as a result of optimization of our
network, reduced headcount and reduction of our facilities.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $20,224,000 from
$23,319,000 due to a decrease in costs as a result of reduced headcount,
reduction of our facilities and a revision in our marketing strategies. During
the three months ended June 30, 2002 we revised our estimate of potential sales
and use tax based on a reassessment in an order by the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, which had the effect of reducing selling, general and
administrative expenses by approximately $800,000.

Corporate expenses include the costs of our officers and headquarters staff, the
costs of operating the headquarters and costs incurred for strategic planning
and evaluation of business opportunities. Corporate expenses increased to
$1,616,000 from $812,000 due to the costs of additional corporate activities and
increased compensation expense.

We incurred additional costs, which consist primarily of employee incentives,
legal fees, accounting fees and printing fees, in connection with our
recapitalization of $4,270,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2002.

Other charges of $33,366,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2001, relate
to our announcements in May and July 2001 that we were taking additional actions
to reorganize, re-size and reduce operating costs and create greater efficiency
in various areas of the Company. These charges included employee severance and
related costs for approximately 630 employees as well as lease exit costs. An
aggregate of $21,748,000 of these costs were for equipment and other assets that
did not require any future cash outlays.

Depreciation expense decreased to $9,140,000 from $11,567,000 primarily as a
result of the reduction in the carrying value of our fixed assets as of December
31, 2001 as determined by a fair value analysis performed in accordance with
SFAS No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for
Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of."

Amortization expense decreased to $83,000 from $23,097,000 due to the reduction
in the carrying value of our intangible assets as of December 31, 2001 as
determined by a fair value analysis performed in accordance with SFAS No. 121 as
well as our adoption of SFAS No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" on
January 1, 2002, which required us to cease amortizing goodwill. Amortization
expense on our goodwill and workforce during the three months ended June 30,
2001 was $23,010,000. Our net loss and our basic and diluted net loss per common
share would have been $63,615,000 and $2.23, respectively, had SFAS No. 142 been
in effect for the first quarter of 2001.

Interest income and other, net, decreased to $100,000 from $656,000 primarily
due to the reduction of interest income resulting from lower cash balances in

Interest expense decreased to $3,737,000 from $7,383,000 due primarily to a
reduction in the effective interest rate on our senior secured credit facility.
The effective interest rate on our senior secured credit facility at June 30,
2002 and June 30, 2001 was 6.75% and 9.29%, respectively.

The income tax benefit of $33,000 during 2001 is from state and local income tax
