LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 10, 2011) - ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFB), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless broadband products and services, announced today that it has finalized and signed the previously announced pure debt financing agreement with Dakota Capital Fund LLC of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for an initial round of financing of up to $3,000,000. The funding will be utilized by ERF Wireless to quickly expand its Energy Broadband subsidiary's presence in the major oil and gas exploration regions of North America.

The financing package provides for immediate access to $2,000,000 and ERF Wireless has already begun to utilize this increased financial capability to quickly acquire the equipment that is required to expand its customer base and thus the associated revenue stream. Dakota Capital Fund LLC also has the option of funding an additional $1,000,000 within 90 days of October 31, 2011, under the same terms. The financing received under this pure debt credit line is secured by certain ERF Wireless assets and there is no prepayment penalty.

Dr. H. Dean Cubley, CEO of ERF Wireless, commented, "This new Dakota Capital Fund financing comes at an extremely opportune time for accelerating the development of our oil and gas business. Our oil and gas subsidiary, Energy Broadband, has been consistently growing its revenue base each quarter for the past few years and is now ready to take a major step forward with the additional capabilities this financing is providing. Over the next few months we will be continuing our network expansions in all of the major oil and gas regions including opening an office in the Bakken Shale region of North Dakota. Given these expansions, the acquisition of a significant amount of new equipment, our new and expanded product offerings, and most importantly the addition of new customers and additional projects with our existing customers we expect our revenue numbers to soar accordingly."
