By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Integrated Telecommunication Services industry with the highest debt to EBITDA ratios. This ratio indicates how many years of EBITDA would be necessary in order to pay back all the debt (assuming Debt and EBITDA are constant). Typically, this ratio is considered to be alarming when it is greater than 3.0 but this can vary and should be looked at within the context of the industry.

Frontier Communi ranks highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 28.6. Consolidated Com is next with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 7.1. Gen Comm-A ranks third highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 5.3.

At&T Inc follows with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 3.6, and Hawaiian Telcom rounds out the top five with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 3.3.
