LEAGUE CITY, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/21/14 -- ERF Wireless Inc. (OTCQB: ERFB), the operator of the nation's largest terrestrial wireless broadband network servicing the domestic oil and gas sector, today is reviewing the highlight company events of 2013 as well as focusing its shareholders on anticipated 2014 key company objectives.

During 2013, ERF Wireless continued to expand its operations and gain market share in all of its three major business sectors; (1) Delivery of broadband Internet and other services to the U.

Dean Cubley stated, "The new year of 2014 has already started a flare with major activity in our oil and gas sector occurring 24/7 throughout the holidays and New Year's Day being extremely busy for our field operations crews. We anticipate that with continued expansion of the U.S. oil and gas exploration and production in 2014 we will continue to maintain and grow this level of activity.
