Eagle Broadband Showcases Satellite Communications System at Texas Hurricane Conference

SatMAX™ Offers New Flexibility During Disaster Recovery

LEAGUE CITY, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 22, 2006 -- Eagle Broadband Inc. (AMEX: EAG), a national provider of broadband, Internet protocol (IP) and communications technology and services, will showcase its SatMAX™ indoor/outdoor Iridium-based advanced satellite communications system at the fourth annual Texas Hurricane Conference in Beaumont, Texas from May 23-25.

Historically limited by the requirement of satellite phones for line-of-sight access to orbiting satellites, emergency responders now have the ability to access dependable and uninterrupted communication from any location via the SatMAX system during disaster recovery. Available as both fixed and mobile units, SatMAX creates a satellite communications "hotspot," allowing more flexibility by enabling multiple callers to use Iridium-based satellite telephones in both outdoor and indoor settings without losing a signal.

The Texas Hurricane Conference takes place at Ford Park Convention Center, located at 5155 IH-10 South. The event will draw emergency managers, elected officials and first responders from across coastal Texas who will discuss key issues in the evacuation, sheltering and re-entry processes.
