Fairpoint Faces Regulatory Boards 

Executives with FairPoint Communications Inc. will face the utilityregulatory boards from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont on Wednesday.It’s highly unusual to have all three states’ regulatory boards hold a joint meeting. But FairPoint has been plagued by ongoing order-fulfillment, customer service, billing and other problems in the three states.FairPoint bought Verizon Communications’ landline telephone and Internet business last year in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont for $2.3 billion.The regulatory boards will hold their joint status conference in Derry, N.H., seeking updates on FairPoint’s efforts to stabilize its troubled operations systems, as well as on organizational changes and financial matters.
