For those of you unaware as to what “Operation: Chokehold” was, let me inform you. Chokehold, started by Fake Steve, was set to be a collective effort to crash AT&T’s network to try and prove that the users control the network, not the executives.

     While I applaud those who tried to make a stand, I also understand why it could have been a dangerous thing. While Chokehold’s original goal to crash, or severely hinder, the network didn’t quite happen I believe a stronger goal was achieved. Chokehold didn’t crash the network, and a small few believe the network was lagging a little more, but the best thing about this protest was that it got the media’s, and AT&T’s, attention.

     The FCC reported prior to the protest that in the scenario Chokehold was to succeed it could keep those in dire need from being able to contact anyone, i.e. 911.  However that was the only truly negative effect from the network crashing that anyone could bring forward. AT&T also made the following comment:

     “We understand that fakesteve.net 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.”

     This comment goes to show that AT&T has no regard for those who try to bring to light the anger that its users are feeling. While I don’t necessarily expect AT&T to be “shaking in their boots” so to speak, I do expect them to show more than just a mocking standpoint when people protest their horrible service. Regardless of how effective the protest was or even how many members participated AT&T should still be concerned that any number of their customers would consider breaking their own service just to prove a point. These seem to be very dangerous waters AT&T is in but they still are yet to give a hoot. For the record, as of the writing of this article, the Facebook group dedicated to “Operation: Chokehold” is 4,588 users strong. While this is only 1/16000 of their userbase my previous statement still remains valid, it only takes one to bring the house down. Especially considering the amount of media hype this protest has received both good and bad.

      In the end the point from us, the disgruntled users, is simple… AT&T you better shape up. One of these days there will be a phone that will top the iPhone, it is simply a matter of time. But one of these days there will definitely be a new champion and then AT&T will have nothing going for them. They have bad service and equally bad customer support. However the much more likely scenario, that Apple will get smart and go with Verizon, will cripple AT&T even faster. In either event the outcome is the same, users will jump ship so quickly AT&T won’t know what hit them. So be prepared AT&T, you haven’t got much time…
