ERF Wireless Demonstrating Oil and Gas Communications Solutions at San Antonio DUG Conference and Exhibition

Company's Oilfield Products and Services Reduce Operating Expenses and Enhance Advanced Real-Time Data Applications

LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -  ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFW), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless and broadband products and services, announced today that the company's wholly owned subsidiary, Energy Broadband Inc., is exhibiting in Booth #710 at the Developing Unconventional Gas (DUG) Eagle Ford Conference & Exhibition that's being held October 4-6, 2010, in San Antonio, Texas.

Sponsored by Hart Energy Publishing, DUG conferences showcase the latest technologies that are being applied to successfully develop unconventional gas plays. Based on early results, the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas may turn out to be the most economic high-return shale play in the U.S. and activity is increasing rapidly. Approximately 50 rigs are already drilling in the Eagle Ford Shale and some 100 drilling permits were filed in the first quarter of 2010, versus 120 for all of 2009.

According to John Nagel, CEO of Energy Broadband, "Over the past several months, we've continued to ramp up our sales efforts with a growing number of major oil and gas companies, educating them on the advantages of using our 'digital oilfield' communications solutions to economically process, in real-time, large amounts of data from their rig sites and production facilities. We've also expanded our focus to include SCADA/pipeline markets. At the DUG Conference, we'll be demonstrating how wireless broadband combines increased bandwidth, speed of deployment, mobility and competitive pricing to positively impact a company's bottom line. We'll also be introducing several new products we've recently added, including rig site communications solutions that cover H2S and other 'Man-Down' notification and equipment monitoring."

Dr. H. Dean Cubley, CEO of ERF Wireless, added, "I'm extremely pleased with the progress that Energy Broadband is making in growing our oil and gas business and look forward to seeing our overall business turn cash flow positive over the next few months as all aspects of our business continue to flourish. I was disappointed that ERF Wireless was not awarded any of the Broadband Stimulus Funding, but that was never a critical factor in our business strategy. We'll continue growing the business to profitability the old-fashioned way and may actually be better off in the long term without having to deal with the requirements that government involvement always brings."
