There was a lot of shop talk to bandy about last month. A Windstream-Charter lawsuit, a new NEC-Intermedia partnership and fallout from Frontier’s bankruptcy all caught your eye.

Also in our countdown, CenturyLInk said it is retiring copper in more states, an ongoing trend among the big communications providers. 8×8 debuted its new Open Communications platform, which it calls a complete portfolio of work-from-anywhere enterprise communications.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop there. One analyst firm predicted another big hit to business landlines if the economy gets worse.

But that’s not all. You stayed glued to the ongoing drama at Frontier Communications, which filed for bankruptcy this year. First, our article about the company divesting resources in the Pacific Northwest stayed red hot. You also furrowed your brow when you learned company execs were getting $38 million in bonuses.
