Oncor Joins The 900 MHz Private Wireless Networks Movement With Anterix Spectrum Agreement

Woodland Park, NJ /PRNewswire/ - Anterix (NASDAQ: ATEX) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC ("Oncor") under which Oncor will acquire 900 MHz broadband spectrum from Anterix necessary to deploy a private wireless broadband network throughout its service territory.

The new licenses will enable Oncor to move to next generation broadband for mission-critical data and voice services within Oncor across its service territory. The network will provide a host of capabilities that are expected to benefit Oncor and its customers, including enhanced resiliency, data transmission, and overall communication and operational intelligence.

Headquartered in Dallas, Oncor is a regulated electricity transmission and distribution business that uses superior asset management skills to provide reliable electricity delivery to consumers. Oncor operates the largest transmission and distribution system in Texas, delivering electricity to more than 4 million homes and businesses across a distribution service territory that has an estimated population of approximately 13 million and operating more than 143,000 circuit miles of transmission and distribution lines in Texas.

"Oncor is an exciting customer for Anterix," said Rob Schwartz, Anterix's President & Chief Executive Officer. "Not only does this agreement address another 'complex system,' but it also adds another utility to our nationwide network of utility networks. This agreement highlights the benefits of private LTE.
