    Earnings Don't Cover Dividend

    Free Cash Flow (Earnings plus Depreciation Expense minus Capital Expenditures) almost is twice the FTR dividend. They get to depreciate all the new wireline assets they just bought from Verizon for the next 30 years. So the answer to your question, ibmwatcher, unless they screw up the integration of the Verizon wirelines they just bought, is a long time.

    It is possible to screw up a major acquisition (see Fairpoint), but the Verizon lines are a much better fit into the Frontier network, they have less new software to develop from these lines, and the FTR management appears to be deeper and more ready for the integration.
