Part 1/1

NEW TEL LIMITED

HOMEX - Perth

Response to ASX Query re Article in AFR 1/12/2000

RESPONSE TO ASX QUERY

Further to the facsimile from ASX dated 3 December 2000 requesting
the Company's comment on an article appearing in The Australian
Financial Review on Friday 1 December 2000 which states that the
Company is believed to be negotiating for the purchase of the
remaining assets of youth portal K*Grind, the Company advises as
follows:

The Company is currently undertaking assessment of the portal
technology assets of K*Grind for theor the purposes of negotiating to
acquire all or part of those assets. At present no agreement has been
reached and no decision made by New Tel to acquire any of those
assets.

The Company believes that the fact that it is considering a potential
acquisition of K*Grind's assets would not have a material affect on
the price of the Company's securities, and so does not warrant
disclosure to the market under Listing Rule 3.1.

If, however, an agreement is reached in connection with an
acquisition, and that agreement is approved by the Board of
Directors, then the Company proposes to make a full announcement to
the market of the details of the acquisition.

If you require any further information, please contact me directly on
9244 1166.

COMPANY SECRETARY
