                           Forward-Looking Statements

This document 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, technological 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.
