ClearWorks adds fiber miles to Houston MAN

Aug. 22, 2001--ClearWorks has recently completed a 22-mile expansion of its Metropolitan Area Network with the installation of more than 5.5 million additional feet of optical fiber.

Eagle Broadband (Amex: EAG) announced that its ClearWorks subsidiary has recently completed a 22-mile expansion of its Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) with the installation of more than 5.5 million additional feet of optical fiber. This additional leg of the company's MAN extends more than 22 miles southwest from the previous termination of the Houston MAN to The Lakes of Eldridge, where residents now have access to ClearWorks' Bundled Digital Services (BDS). These services include high-quality, cable-style television over fiber (200+ channels), local and long distance telephone service, high-speed broadband Internet connectivity (10 Mbps) and security monitoring services.

This new MAN addition also supports the second phase of ClearWorks' broadband initiative by providing excess broadband capacity that can make ClearWorks BDS services available wirelessly to a potential customer base of more than 50,000 homes in the area surrounding the new termination point.

The company plans to complete a MAN loop around the Greater Houston Metropolitan Area.
