ERF Wireless Updates Requirements for Energy Broadband Stock Dividend

ERFW Adjusts Share Requirements to Receive Common Stock and Warrants in Oil and Gas Subsidiary

LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFWD), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless broadband products and services, issued an update today regarding the company's recently announced decision to dividend up to 5% of the existing common stock in Energy Broadband, the company's wholly owned oil and gas private subsidiary.

In a press release issued June 22, 2011, the company announced that ERF Wireless would dividend shareholders who owned at least 100,000 of ERF Wireless common shares, or preferred stock convertible into 100,000 common shares, as of September 30, 2011. Since ERF Wireless has implemented a reverse stock split subsequent to that announcement, the company has revised the requirements for shareholders to receive the dividend to reflect the terms of the reverse stock split.

According to ERF Wireless CEO Dr. H. Dean Cubley, "In light of the reverse stock split, 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."

Dr. Cubley went on to say, "There seems to be some level of concern and confusion among the ERF Wireless shareholders that this dividend is an indication that ERF Wireless is going to divest itself of Energy Broadband in the future. This is exactly opposite to what is planned. The subject dividend is to reward ERF Wireless shareholders for their continued support as well as to achieve the number of shareholders required to take Energy Broadband public in the future where it will remain as a majority-owned public subsidiary of the public company ERF Wireless. At that point current ERF Wireless shareholders who participate in the tax free dividend will benefit from owning common stock in two public companies with their ERF Wireless common stock benefiting from the performance of both ERF Wireless as well as Energy Broadband.

"Now that we've completed our reverse stock split, we'll be focusing our efforts on stabilizing and growing the ERF Wireless market capitalization by growing our overall revenue stream month over month and keeping our shareholders up-to-date on Energy Broadband's continued growth and success in the oil and gas market, as well as the progress being achieved in our other divisions," said Dr. Cubley.
