New FairPoint Rebates 

FairPoint customers will soon be getting additional rebates.The Maine Public Utilities Commission voted yesterday to reject FairPoint’s request to reduce the amount it must pay for not meeting customer service benchmarks between August of 2009, and July of 2010. As a result, FairPoint will pay a little more than 9 million in bill credits over 12 months, starting next month.These rebates come on top of an additional $8,000,000 that FairPoint began paying last March for poor service in 2009.
