Part I-Registrant Information

         Full Name of Registrant:
                           ATX Communications, Inc.

         Former Name if Applicable:
                           CoreComm Holdco, Inc.

         Address of Principal Executive Office (Street and Number):
                           50 Monument Road

         City, State and Zip Code
                           Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004

Part II-Rules 12b-25 (b) and (c)

     If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or
expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25, the following
should be completed. (Check box if appropriate) [x]

     (a)  The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form
          could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

     (b)  The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on
          Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or portion thereof will be
          filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed
          due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form
          10-Q, or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar
          day following the prescribed due date; and

     (c)  The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c)
          has been attached if applicable.

Part III-Narrative

     State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K,
10-Q, N-SAR or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed
within the prescribed time period.

     The annual report on Form 10-K could not be filed within the prescribed
time period because the Company and the senior lenders under its senior secured
credit facility entered into an amendment to the credit facility on March 31,
2003. The amendment to the credit facility requires modification to the
disclosure in the Company's annual report. Accordingly, the Company needs
additional time to complete the disclosure in the annual report on Form 10-K as
required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Part IV-Other Information

     (1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this

(Name)                            (Area Code)                 (Telephone Number)

     (2) Have all other periodic reports required under section 13 or 15(d) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act
of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the
registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If the answer is no,
identify report(s).

                                                                  [x] Yes [ ] No

     (3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?

                                                                  [ ] Yes [x] No

     If so: attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively
and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable
estimate of the results cannot be made.
