ERF Wireless (News - Alert), Inc., a provider of enterprise-class wireless and broadband products and services, has completed building its high speed wireless broadband network in the Eagle Ford Shale region of south Texas.
This network covers major oil and gas drilling and production areas that extend southwest from Yoakum, Tex., to an area near Cotulla.
ERF Wireless said that the company has also completed additional network expansions and established three separate new network regions in the Permian Basin of West Texas in areas west and south of the Midland-Odessa area.
"The completion of our recent network build-outs has added approximately 22,000 square miles of new terrestrial wireless coverage in North America for ERF Wireless. That should translate into a greater opportunity for Energy Broadband to continue its growth in the oil and gas industry,” said Dr. H. Dean Cubley (News - Alert), CEO of ERF Wireless, in a statement.
Dr. Cubley added that the expanded coverage should also provide an opportunity for the company’s enterprise network services division as well as the wireless bundled services division to utilize these new networks to generate multiple revenue streams from a new pool of banking, healthcare, educational, commercial and residential customers.
Back in June, ERF Wireless revealed that it had recently expanded 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 in addition to supporting the overall oil and gas customer movement into these new areas.
