Verizon Communications will look to boost its credit rating back to A- and invest more funds in its Long-Term Evolution network once its $130 billion deal to take full control of Vodafone is complete, Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo said at an industry conference Wednesday. "We need to de-lever as quickly as possible. We are going to continue to invest in our network and our platforms. We're going to continue to acquire spectrum, which we need to deliver our wireless performance," Shammo said, adding he expects shareholders to approve the deal in January.
