According to a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, Verizon intends to sell assets for more than $10 billion. Among those are mobile telephone towers and parts of its landline business, which is the largest in the country.

The sale would allow Verizon to pay down debt and cover some of the $10.4 billion it spent in the AWS-3 auction. It will also allow the carrier to focus on its core wireless service, which brings more than 70 percent of its revenue.

This is not the first time that the company sells properties.
