said by Mactron Yup, look how well Hawaiian Telcom (The Carlyle Group) did after VZ dumped Hawaii in 2005. Your future has has come before.
Do you have a cite? How did they do (or not)?
I believe I have read not long ago that the HI Telecom deal didn't produce the margins that Carlyle wanted. I haven't read anything that says that they couldn't provide telephone service at the same level as verizon had previously.
