Apr. 25, 2001--Eagle Broadband announced that its subsidiary, ClearWorks Communications, has recently taken delivery of more than 160,000 feet of 48-strand, single-mode optical fiber and has begun installing this fiber in the second leg of its Metropolitan Area Network on Houston's south side.

Eagle Broadband (Amex: EAG) announced that its subsidiary, ClearWorks Communications, has recently taken delivery of more than 160,000 feet of 48-strand, single-mode optical fiber and has begun installing this fiber in the second leg of its Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) on Houston's south side. This expansion of the company's MAN will extend more than 18 miles south from Highway 288 to Interstate 45, and will pass by and provide more than 47,000 homes the opportunity to access ClearWorks' Bundled Digital Services (BDS).

ClearWorks BDS services include high-quality cable style television, local and long distance telephone, high-speed broadband Internet connectivity and security monitoring services. Additional extensions of the Houston MAN are planned in the near future.

Shannon D. McLeroy, President and CEO of ClearWorks Communications, noted that plans are already in progress to connect the company's two MAN legs to give ClearWorks a loop around 90 percent of the Houston area. In the meantime, ClearWorks' new MAN will allow the company to pursue markets south of Houston where it already is providing or preparing to initiate full BDS packages in Victory Lakes, Rodeo Palms and other new communities.
