this poll was taken by a private company for Bristol news. we asked 1000 area people on a scale of 1-10 how do you rate fairpoint. 70 percent of participants said I will give them a one. 30 percent said I would give them minus five if I could. Bristol news will run this poll every week

I'm sure this lawyer and those like him are somehow related to competitors like Time Warner Cable.

I use FairPoint and have had fantastic internet connections and high speeds. But back when I used Time Warner the cable internet often got very slow in the late afternoons and evenings and all too often would freeze up and/or we'd get bumped off line. Since switching to FairPoint years ago I have had fantastic high speed internet on an "unshared" line that doesn't get throttled, bottle necked, and frozen like Time Warner does. I'd give FairPoint a sold "A" grad and give Time Warner a "C+" at best.
