2020 started off with a bang as you lined up to read about some pretty controversial doings in the channel.

Still muddling its way through chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, Windstream caught the ire of those who think $19 million in bonuses to a handful of key executives is a little much. AT&T got on its union’s bad side with another chunk of layoffs as it continues to modernize its network. And CenturyLink paid up some hefty settlements due to what some state attorneys general describe as “deceptive” practices. Verizon discontinued more copper facilities in one of the largest states of the union and Avaya’s shift to the cloud means cutting off sales of a popular product.

But not all of the news was that edgy. Telarus makes our list for a number of key hires, most notably bringing in a UC and contact center expert who used to work for a rival.
