Re: Light Spending
I see this as a way verizon is looking at what Google has in plan to move into verizon area. If verizon does not push fios into town that have the money to push out better data service to the customer, the game of 4glte is dead.

The path to network sharing/parity
It used to be that carriers protected their sites as a competetive barrier againts a competitor gaining coverage parity, but selling off sites means that others can deploy the same network coverage. This is in theory if not in effect lays the business groundwork for more network and site sharing where appropriate, such as small cells.

Re: Wireline stuff
Well Frontier and Fairpoint had their bite (and got bad digestion as a result); CenturyLink is probably  the next in line to acquire at least some of these assets I'd think. In fact rumors that CenturyLink is buying some assets in TX, CA and FL has been the Verizon employee rumor du jour for quite a few months now.

Re: Wireline stuff
Dan,

The IOCs and Verizon run so differently those of us who have worked with both new there were going to be huge issues with integration.  So, who would buy depends on the actual asset.

Wireline stuff
I wonder who's really interested in the wireline assets and at what price--at least a few regional telcos had to overcome a lot of operational issues to absorb line acquisitions from Verizon in past years.

Light Spending
They're also going to need a dollar or two to fund the lighting up of their aggressive dark fiber to the cell site roll out.
