7 Key Driver: High Bandwidth Deployments Verizon AT&T When it comes to our 5G and investing our business, we have a big year in front of us in 2021. Again, we're going to almost double the amount of 5G Ultra Wideband sites. We're going to have 14,000 new sites coming in during 2021. That will enable us to continue to increase with plus 20 cities when it comes to 5G Ultra Wideband and we're also going to add some plus 25 home cities. At the same time, focusing very much on the 5G mobile edge compute with 10 more sites when it comes to the public side. “ ” - Hans Vestberg, CEOVerizon Communications, Inc. – January 2021 Companies deploying fiber-to-the-home, fiber-to-the-node, and fiber-to-the-building technologies to enable 1 gigabit connections Data transmission speeds dramatically increasing 0 1,000 2,000 3,000 4,000 5,000 6,000 Q1-19 Q2-19 Q3-19 Q4-19 Q1-20 Q2-20 Q3-20 Q4-20 F ib e r B ro a d b a n d S u b s c ri b e rs ( 0 0 0 s ) 5 12 3231 61 86 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 2019 2020 2021 M a rk e ts C o n n e c te d 5G Home 5G Mobile The significance of fiber broadband continues to expand not just as a superior fixed access technology but also is the foundational layer for empowering 5G connections and business connectivity.

Key Driver: 5G Deployment 8 Growth in Number of Small Cells Wireless carriers are increasing 4G capacity and augmenting 4G with new 5G technologies creating growth opportunities in the near to intermediate term Number of small cells are predicted to exceed 1,000,000 by 2027; hundreds of thousands of small cells will need to be deployed in the next few years to meet growing demands Emerging wireless technologies driving significant wireline deployments Wireline deployments are the foundational element of what is expected to be a decades long deployment of fully converged wireless/wireline networks that will enable high bandwidth, low latency 5G applications Source: Rysavy Research LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC. If you think about the capital cost associated with building Small Cell networks, about 80%, 85% of the total cost of building those networks is in the Fiber itself…based on the type of infrastructure that has to be deployed in order to achieve a Small Cell solution for the carriers, the majority of the – think about the revenue and the underlying cost associated with that – is going to be in the Fiber asset, the Fiber asset itself. “ ” - Jay Brown, CEOCrown Castle International Corp. – April 2020

21 Questions and Answers

Outlook 22 For Q1 2022, as compared sequentially to Q4 2021, the Company expects contract revenues to range from in-line to modestly lower and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of contract revenues to range from in-line to modestly higher The Company believes that, in addition to other factors, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its operating results, cash flows and financial condition is uncertain, unpredictable and could affect its ability to achieve these expected financial results This slide was used on March 3, 2021 in connection with the Company’s conference call for its fiscal 2021 fourth quarter results. This information is provided for your reference only and should not be interpreted as a reiteration of these projections by the Company at any time after the date originally provided. Reference is made to slide 2 titled “Important Information” with respect to these slides. The information and statements contained in this slide that are forward-looking are based on information that was available at the time the slide was initially prepared and/or management’s good faith belief at that time with respect to future events. Except as required by law, the Company may not update forward-looking statements even though its situation may change in the future. For a full copy of the conference call materials, including the conference call transcript, see the Company’s Form 8-Ks filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 3, 2021 and March 4, 2021.

Notes 1) Organic growth (decline) % adjusted for revenues from acquired businesses, storm restoration services, and for the additional week of operations during the fourth quarter as a result of the Company’s 52/53 week fiscal year, when applicable. 2) Due to the change in the Company’s fiscal year end, the Company’s fiscal 2018 six month transition period consisted of Q1 2018 and Q2 2018. For comparative purposes all amounts provided are for 4 Quarters Ended January. 3) The Company’s backlog represents an estimate of services to be performed pursuant to master service agreements and other contractual agreements over the terms of those contracts. These estimates are based on contract terms and evaluations regarding the timing of the services to be provided. In the case of master service agreements, backlog is estimated based on the work performed in the preceding 12 month period, when available. When estimating backlog for newly initiated master service agreements and other long and short-term contracts, the Company also considers the anticipated scope of the contract and information received from the customer during the procurement process. A significant majority of the Company’s backlog comprises services under master service agreements and other long-term contracts. Backlog is not a measure defined by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, GAAP results. Participants in the Company’s industry often disclose a calculation of their backlog; however, the Company’s methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by others. Dycom utilizes the calculation of backlog to assist in measuring aggregate awards under existing contractual relationships with its customers. The Company believes its backlog disclosures will assist investors in better understanding this estimate of the services to be performed pursuant to awards by its customers under existing contractual relationships. 4) As of both January 30, 2021 and October 24, 2020 , the Company had $52.2 million of standby letters of credit outstanding under the Senior Credit Facility. 5) Liquidity represents the sum of the Company’s availability on its revolving facility as defined by the Company’s Senior Credit Facility and available cash and equivalents. 6) DSO is calculated as the summation of current and non-current accounts receivable (including unbilled receivables), net of allowance for doubtful accounts, plus current contract assets, less contract liabilities (formerly referred to as billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings) divided by average revenue per day during the respective quarter. Long-term contract assets are excluded from the calculation of DSO, as these amounts represent payments made to customers pursuant to long-term agreements and are recognized as a reduction of contract revenues over the period for which the related services are provided to the customers. 7) Notional net debt as of Q4 2020, Q1 2021, and Q2 2021 consisted of the following: 23 Debt Summary Q4 2020 Q1 2021 Q2 2021 $ Millions 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes, mature Sept 2021: $ 460.0 $ 293.0 $ 58.3 Senior Credit Facility, matures Oct 2023: 4 Term Loan Facility 444.4 438.8 433.1 Revolving Facility - 675.0 200.0 Total Notional Amount of Debt $ 904.4 $ 1,406.7 $ 691.4 Less: Cash and Equivalents 54.6 643.9 22.5 Notional Net Debt $ 849.8 $ 762.9 $ 668.9
