ERF Wireless Receives U.S. Patent Office Notice of Second CryptoVue Patent Award

Hardware and Software Upgrades Ready Device for New Market Opportunities

LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - January 13, 2011) - ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFW), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless and broadband products and services, announced today that the company's patent attorney recently received correspondence from the U.S. Patent Office that the second patent the company had previously applied for, relating to other aspects of the CryptoVue® encrypted security device, has been approved and that a patent will be issued as soon as the proper forms are submitted. The announcement that an initial CryptoVue patent had been awarded was made in 2010. The company also noted that other CryptoVue patent applications that cover different functions are still under review.

Dr. H. Dean Cubley, CEO of ERF Wireless, commented, "I'm very pleased to report to our shareholders that now two of the patent applications submitted several years ago in connection with our CryptoVue security appliance product have reached the end of the patent process and that this second patent will be formally issued to ERF Wireless Inc. in the very near future. This is particularly satisfying since we have been working over the past year to upgrade both the software and hardware capabilities of our CryptoVue product in preparation for its introduction into a number of new markets as well as to broaden its application in bank networks. Having multiple patents, newly enhanced security software, and a more versatile and robust hardware platform should open up many new market opportunities for an already respected and proven product."
