Verizon's Morse Code, Typewriter Responses Decry Net Neutrality

By    |   Friday, 27 Feb 2015 06:30 PM

Verizon voiced its objections to the FCC’s Net Neutrality regulations by putting out its press release in a typewriter font, headlined with the words “1930s rules,” and also sending out the release by Morse code.

The controversial regulations affecting the Internet are opposed by most communications businesses like Verizon, but the company apparently wanted to make sure the public understood exactly how it feels about the issue.

“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,” the release said.

Verizon wasn’t the only company to make a statement about the FCC ruling. Netflix spoke out Wednesday in favor of net neutrality, and its tweet went viral:



Thursday’s FCC approval, which is expected to be challenged by Verizon and others, pitted smaller businesses, startups, and businesses that function on advertising against companies that have the tech infrastructure, Fast Company reported.

“The new rules prohibit site blocking, paid prioritization, and other tiered and gatekeeping activities, effectively regulating the Internet as if it were a public utility,” FC said.

Verizon’s mockery of the FCC decision generated its own online following.
