I REALLY dont think the fairpoint executives care about what happens to the company. They will have their Golden Parachutes to land softly to earth after users jump for "faster" yet capped LTE. Once fairpoint collapses...... again..... the executive will leave and get a nice comfy job at VZW in there area.
Only way this could of been avoided, IMO, would of been to tack on a condition of jail time if these executives dont turn the neglected infrastructure around and produce a real product. But like it said.. that's my opinion.
