General Overview
Overview
We own, operate or lease shared wireless infrastructure, including: (1) towers,
(2) distributed antenna systems, a type of small cell network, and (3) third party land interests. Our core business is providing access, including space or capacity, to our towers, and to a lesser extent, to our small cell networks and third party land interests via long-term contracts in various forms. Site rental revenues represented 83% of our third quarter 2013 consolidated net revenues, of which 95% was attributable to our CCUSA operating segment. The vast majority of our site rental revenues is of a recurring nature and has been contracted for in a prior year. See our 2012 Form 10-K for a further discussion of our business, including our long-term strategy, growth trends in the wireless communications industry and our wireless infrastructure portfolio. The following are certain highlights of our business fundamentals and results as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.
Potential growth resulting from wireless network expansion and new entrants

             We expect wireless carriers will continue their focus on improving
              network quality and expanding capacity by adding additional
              antennas and other equipment on our wireless infrastructure.


             We expect existing and potential new wireless carrier demand for
              our wireless infrastructure will result from (1) next generation
              technologies, (2) continued development of mobile internet
              applications, (3) adoption of other emerging and embedded wireless
              devices, (4) increasing smartphone penetration, (5) wireless
              carrier focus on expanding coverage and capacity and (6) the
              availability of additional spectrum.


             Substantially all of our wireless infrastructure can accommodate
              additional tenancy, either as currently constructed or with
              appropriate modifications to the structure.

U.S. wireless carriers continue to invest in their networks.
