The Opposite For the most part. For a company thats responsible for people's telecommunication services, they need to be more heavy regulated as far as outages and services calls for telephone service.
Though some may disagree on this website, broadband should take a back seat, and they should be able to lax their initial upgrade projection timelines. Maybe not appeasing to the consumer or wall st, but broadband isnt as much of a lifeline as telephone service, and thus shouldnt be considered AS important.
Speed upgrades arent as important as reliability, at this point.

Why not let them do whatever they want? It's time the people and regulators in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire experience the full incompetence of FairPoint. You reap what you sow...

If companies couldn't do the "bankruptcy" as part of their "business" plan, a lot of these "deals" wouldn't go through. If a private citizen does bankruptcy as a last resort, the are the devil incarnate.
The Firefox alternative.
said by cork1958:I didn't say screw regulating, which is working so wonderfully /sarcasm, I was referring that the only way "Fairpoint" was going to make this work was through the bankruptcy process. If they couldn't do the bankruptcy, they probably wouldn't have done the deal. my comment stands on it's own, it is is ok for Banks and companies to do the bankruptcy, but when as you put it "Joe Blow" does it, all of a sudden it is just plain wrong. And where was the regulating? Oh you mean bankruptcy? And why should businesses be better than 'Joe Blow" ? I mean the Supreme court just ruled that corporations have the same rights as an individual, shouldn't they have the same responsibities?
There you go. Screw regulating, just treat businesses as you would Joe Blow individual!!
