                                Forward-Looking Statements

This document, including exhibits attached hereto contains numerous
forward-looking statements, based on management's current beliefs and
assumptions. The forward-looking statements involve expectations, projections
and estimates regarding the wireless industry or Crown Castle International
Corp. (including its subsidiaries), including expectations, projections and
estimates regarding: (i) BBE co-location rate per tower, (ii) net cash provided
by operating activities, (iii) capital expenditures, (iv) BT site acquisition
payments, (v) free cash flow, and (vi) towers to be built.

Such forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks, uncertainties and
assumptions, including (i) those relating to the matters described above, (ii)
those included in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, and (iii) the following:

o        Demand for towers and wireless communication sites may be lower or
         slower than anticipated for numerous reasons, including reduced carrier
         expansion, carrier consolidation, network sharing, technology
         development, or RF health concerns

o        Demand for wireless communications may be lower or slower than
         anticipated for numerous reasons, including slow customer adoption
         rates of 2.5/3G and other technologies

o        Our strategy may be more difficult to implement than anticipated due to
         financial or other reasons, including our significant amount of
         indebtedness, or reduced cash flow as a result of reduced revenues or
         increased operating costs, interest rates or capital expenditures

Should one or more of these risks materialize, or should any underlying
assumption prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those
projected in the forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no obligation
to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new
information, future events or otherwise.



          Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
