Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On November 8, 2012, Towerstream Corporation (the "Company") issued a press release announcing results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. A copy of the press release is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1 and is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 and 7.01 and shall not be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (the "Exchange Act"), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing. The furnishing of the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K is not intended to, and does not, constitute a representation that such furnishing is required by Regulation FD or that the information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K constitutes material investor information that is not otherwise publicly available.

The press release includes EBITDA calculations, which is not a generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measure. It is presented in the press release because the Registrant's management uses this information in evaluating the operating efficiency and overall financial performance of its business. The Registrant's management also believes that this information provides the users of the Registrant's financial statements with valuable insight into its operating results. EBITDA is calculated as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding when applicable, stock-based compensation, other non-operating income or expenses, as well as gain or loss on
(i) disposal of property and equipment, (ii) nonmonetary transactions, and (iii) business acquisitions. It is important to note, however, that non-GAAP financial measures as presented do not represent cash provided by or used in operating activities and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Neither should be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, excluding non-recurring expenses and Small Cell rooftop tower locations expenses, net, as compared to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net loss, is presented in a reconciliation table in the attached press release.

Any statements that are not historical facts contained in this Form 8-K are "forward-looking statements" as that term is defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 ("PSLRA") which statements may be identified by words such as "expects," "plans," "projects," "will," "may," "anticipates," "believes," "should," "intends," "estimates," and other words of similar meaning. Forward-looking statements, include certain statements regarding intent, beliefs, expectations, projections, forecasts and plans, which are subject to numerous assumptions, risks, and uncertainties. A number of factors described from time to time in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission could cause actual conditions, events, or results to differ significantly from those described in the forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements included in this Form 8-K are based on information available at the time of the report. We assume no obligation to update any forward-looking statement. We intend that all forward-looking statements be subject to the safe-harbor provisions of the PSLRA.
