I wouldn't call the move smart but rather scum bag. Either way Frontier accepted the deal, no feeling sorry for yourself now.
I believe the term you are looking for is "carpet-bagger".
You see, with Fairpoint, it is a southern-company that got hooked and stuck with the bill/debt of Verizon's dying copper-plant.
Now Fairpoint's investors were either narrow-minded or plan on short-selling soon.
