FairPoint Rebate 

About 20,000 FairPoint Communications customers in Maine who lost e-mail service during the conversion from Verizon are eligible for credit rebates.Representative Herb Adams from Portland says he proposed the rebates as a goodwill gesture to the affected customers.The company agreed to the payments last week at a meeting of the legislature’s utilities and energy committee.Customers who lost service for a week or more will get one month’s credit on their next billing.Those who were out for a shorter period will get a $10 credit.The service disruptions occurred during several weeks of the e-mail cutover in January and February.
