AT&T responds to “Operation Chokehold” shenanigans. Typical copy/paste response included.

While Operation Chokehold may not be gaining the mass support the organizers would hope for, (so far fans on the Facebook Fan Page are only in the triple digits) it’s nice to see that it’s at least hitting home. AT&T has responded tonight with the typical cookie cutter response your typical uneducated PR team is use to pumping out…

We understand that is primarily a satirical forum, but there is nothing amusing about advocating that customers attempt to deliberately degrade service on a network that provides critical communications services for more than 80 million customers. We know that the vast majority of customers will see this action for what it is: an irresponsible and pointless scheme to draw attention to a blog.

When end users try to use the network for any normal uses that they actually pay for it’s irresponsible and “uneducated” yet when someone tries to highlight the networks shortcomings, all of a sudden all of that precious voice and data communication suddenly becomes critical. Ok.

I’m optimistic and hoping for the best (read: I hope AT&T bites the big one) yet the low Facebook turnout points to a less favorable outcome. And to reiterate, the only childish and irresponsible people in the entire situation are those of the BIg Blue corporate machine.
