ERF Wireless Finalizes Requirements for Energy Broadband Stock Dividend

ERFB Issues Additional Details Regarding September 30, 2011 Dividend

LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2011) - ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFB), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless broadband products and services, issued an update today regarding the company's previously announced decision to issue a dividend to ERF Wireless shareholders of up to 5% of the existing common stock in Energy Broadband, the company's wholly owned oil and gas private subsidiary. Previously, ERF Wireless announced that for each 200 shares of ERF Wireless common stock, or preferred stock convertible into 200 common shares, that a shareholder owns as of September 30, 2011, the shareholder will receive one unit of Energy Broadband securities consisting of 100 Energy Broadband common shares, one warrant to purchase 100 shares at a fixed price of $4.00 per share and one warrant to purchase an additional 100 shares at a fixed price of $6.00 per share. The purpose of this press release is to provide more details regarding the actual dividend process.

If you are an ERF Wireless shareholder holding your shares in a brokerage account and you are a non-objecting beneficial owner, you will not have to take any action to receive your units. You will receive your units based on the number of full 200-share increments of ERF Wireless you hold in your account as of the record date. The units will be sent to the address on the account unless you instruct us otherwise in writing. If you are holding your shares in certificate form, you will receive your units based on the transfer agent record of the number of shares you own at the address in that record unless you instruct us in writing otherwise. If you are an objecting beneficial owner holding your shares in a brokerage, you must submit written proof to ERF Wireless of your ownership as of the record date and provide us with current contact information so that we may send you your units. If you have shares in more than one account under exactly the same name, they may be combined for the purpose of the dividend. However, accounts in different names or with another person will be treated as separate accounts.

It is anticipated that most stockholders will receive their units within 90 days of the record date, unless we are unable to contact you at the address in our records. If you do not receive your units within 120 days following the record date and you believe you are qualified to receive units, please contact us at the official address shown below. All distributions of dividend units will be completed within 180 days following the record date and no requests that are received after that date can be honored.
