LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire -06/20/12)- ERF Wireless (ERFB), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless broadband products and services, announced today that it has recently initiated expansion of its existing terrestrial broadband networks through a combination of construction and contractual agreements into major oil and gas drilling areas in the states of Kansas, Nebraska and Montana.
These new network expansions had been planned for some time but are now being accelerated to meet the current needs of existing Fortune 200 customers of the Energy Broadband subsidiary of ERF Wireless as well as to support the overall oil and gas customer movement into these new areas. In a similar expansion, ERF Wireless has previously announced that it is in the process of building a new terrestrial wireless broadband network in the Bakken Shale area of North Dakota as well as significantly expanding its existing networks in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
According to Dr. H. Dean Cubley, CEO of ERF Wireless, "Prior to this new construction, ERF Wireless already had the largest oil and gas based terrestrial wireless network in North America that has been built by a combination of acquisitions and construction over the last eight years. However, as new areas of oil and gas exploration and production are identified by our major customers, we plan to maintain this network superiority by adding new coverage areas in any area of North America that our customers require and that the business case will support."
