FairPoint Deal 

Maine, Vermont and the Federal Communications Commission have already approved the $2.35 billion deal.

Regulators in all three states balked at the initial, $2.7 billion purchase price, questioning whether FairPoint had the resources to take over a regional communications network that would dwarf the rest of the company.

The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission approved the deal on Monday, with one dissenting vote.
