Verizon responds in Morse Code

Last weeks FCC decision on Net Neutrality caused Verizon to respond in a statement issued in Morse Code.

This decision in part, prevents ISPs from throttling Internet speeds for legal traffic and adds other restrictions.

I hesitate to say too much hear for fear of turning this into a political commentary thread.
So, let me just say this.

I like your style Verizon!

The cool part is that if they had delivered this audibly, likely it would be faster than reading it.
For some, at least…

For the lazy…

TODAY’S DECISION BY THE FCC TO ENCUMBER BROADBAND INTERNET SERVICES WITH BADLY ANTIQUATED REGULATIONS IS A RADICAL STEP THAT PRESAGES A TIME OF UNCERTAINTY FOR CONSUMERS, INNOVATORS AND INVESTORS. OVER THE PAST TWO DECADES A BIPARTISAN, LIGHT-TOUCH POLICY APPROACH UNLEASHED UNPRECEDENTED INVESTMENT AND ENABLED THE BROADBAND INTERNET AGE CONSUMERS NOW ENJOY. THE FCC TODAY CHOSE TO CHANGE THE WAY THE COMMERCIAL INTERNET HAS OPERATED SINCE ITS CREATION. CHANGING A PLATFORM THAT HAS BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL SHOULD BE DONE, IF AT ALL, ONLY AFTER CAREFUL POLICY ANALYSIS, FULL TRANSPARENCY, AND BY THE LEGISLATURE, WHICH IS CONSTITUTIONALLY CHARGED WITH DETERMINING POLICY. AS A RESULT, IT IS LIKELY THAT HISTORY WILL JUDGE TODAY’S ACTIONS AS MISGUIDED. THE FCC’S MOVE IS ESPECIALLY REGRETTABLE BECAUSE IT IS WHOLLY UNNECESSARY. THE FCC HAD TARGETED TOOLS AVAILABLE TO PRESERVE AN OPEN INTERNET, BUT INSTEAD CHOSE TO USE THIS ORDER AS AN EXCUSE TO ADOPT 300-PLUS PAGES OF BROAD AND OPEN-ENDED REGULATORY ARCANA THAT WILL HAVE UNINTENDED NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES FOR CONSUMERS AND VARIOUS PARTS OF THE INTERNET ECOSYSTEM FOR YEARS TO COME. WHAT HAS BEEN AND WILL REMAIN CONSTANT BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE EXISTENCE OF ANY REGULATIONS IS VERIZON’S COMMITMENT TO AN OPEN INTERNET THAT PROVIDES CONSUMERS WITH COMPETITIVE BROADBAND CHOICES AND INTERNET ACCESS WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW THEY WANT.

Am I the only one that thinks Verizon responded in Morse Code because the audio quality between the person that wrote the message and the reporters was so poor that ON/OFF was all they could get? :smiley:
