ERF Wireless Completes First Phase of New Wireless Network Segment in Midland, Texas Area and Initiates Contract Services to Multiple New Rig Sites for Multi-Billion Dollar Global Oil and Gas Company

LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) -  ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFW), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless broadband products and services, announced today that Energy Broadband Inc., its wholly owned private subsidiary, has completed the installation of the first segment of a planned major new terrestrial wireless network coverage area that will eventually provide more than five thousand square miles of new wireless coverage for oil and gas customers to the east and south of the Midland/Odessa area of West Texas. This initial completed segment extends eastward from Midland and provides approximately 400 square miles of new wireless coverage centered in the Gardnerville area. Energy Broadband began providing wireless service to multiple oil and gas drilling locations in this newly constructed area using its mobile broadband tower (MBT) product within hours of its completion. Construction of the remainder of the planned new coverage area is in progress and is expected to be completed within ninety days.

John Nagel, CEO of Energy Broadband, commented, "With additional contracts recently secured in the Midland/Odessa region from a major oil and gas company, we've now officially opened our new office in Odessa including the addition of sales and technical support personnel. The anticipated opening of this office was announced in a press release on November 1, 2010. Gary Busby, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Energy Broadband, will be relocating to our Odessa office and he'll be joined by a technical staff to support our growing oil and gas customer base in the region. When our new wireless network is completed, we expect to have the largest wireless coverage in the entire region to the east and south of the Midland/Odessa area to add to our already existing extensive wireless coverage. Energy Broadband would invite all of our oil and gas customers to contact our sales staff at (888)770-7052 to get more information regarding our products and capabilities for the oil and gas industry, this new coverage, and our planned coverage in other oil and gas regions such as the Eagle Ford Shale.
