Eagle Broadband Signs Satellite Pro's to Resell SatMAX™ Iridium-Based Satellite Communications System

SatMAX™ Products to Be Marketed to First-Responder Disaster-Recovery Market

LEAGUE CITY, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 13, 2006 -- Eagle Broadband, Inc. (AMEX: EAG), a national provider of broadband, Internet protocol (IP) and communications technology and services, and Satellite Pro's, Inc., a provider of satellite- and cell-phone-based communications services, today announced Satellite Pro's will resell Eagle's SatMAX™ advanced Iridium satellite communications system to their customer base.

SatMAX™ is an advanced communications system that enables users to quickly and easily make fully wireless, satellite voice and data communications available from any non-line-of-sight location. Historically limited by the requirement of satellite phones for line-of-sight access to orbiting satellites, customers now have the ability to access dependable and uninterrupted communication via the SatMAX™ system. 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. With SatMAX™, customers of the Iridium satellite network can now use their existing satellite phones or data terminals to make multiple concurrent calls within SatMAX™-enabled "hotspot" areas from anywhere on Earth.

"The SatMAX system gives us a new opportunity in a communications marketplace where we already have a strong foothold," said William Heritage, general manager of Satellite Pro's. "The ability to offer indoor/outdoor satellite phone capability positions us to support our clients, not only in their day-to-day communications, but also in the wake of a natural disaster or act of terrorism."
