The firm performance is measured by return on assets while capital structure is proxied with the ratio of debt total assets.

The empirical results indicated that capital structure of telecommunication firm has significantly impact to the firm performance in developed and developing countries as well as in integrated and wireless telecommunication firms. The other factors that effect on firm performance are firm size and growth.
