Analyst: Verizon could sell as many as 12,500 cell towers

Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) was opened up to the possibility of selling its wireless towers because of AT&T's (NYSE:T) agreement last year to sell and lease 9,700 of its cell towers to Crown Castle in a $4.85 billion deal, according to Verizon Communications CFO Fran Shammo.

According to Cowen & Co. estimates cited by Bloomberg, Verizon has 12,000 to 15,000 towers. Macquarie Securities analyst Kevin Smithen wrote in a research note that he estimates that Verizon is looking to sell about 12,500 sites.

Shammo said at an investor conference on Wednesday that a deal for Verizon's towers always came down to price, and terms and conditions. "And some of the recent deals that have been done, the terms and conditions seem to be much more favorable," he said, according to a transcript of his remarks provided by Verizon.
