Fairpoint's union problems, Verizon's FiOS slowdown and other wireline nightmares

FierceWireless today published its roundup of wireless executive nightmares. From Tim Cook's worries over China to John Legere's concerns over Sprint and its 6-foot, 6-inch CEO, these are the nightmares that are haunting top execs in the wireless industry.

And concurrent with this, FierceTelecom is taking a look at the nightmares that are haunting executives in the wireline industry. Among those nightmares is FairPoint's ongoing fight with its union workers. The situation remains unresolved and is surely giving FairPoint executives sleepless nights. Similarly, Verizon executives are likely becoming concerned with slowing FiOS growth as the company's rollout of that technology comes to a halt.
