Verizon to publish reports on data requested by NSA
December 22 , 2013
Looks like the NSA's ability to snoop around took another hit: Verizon has announced that it will now publish reports on all the data requests it receives from law-enforcement agencies and the government.
The Washington Post notes that this move will raise pressure on AT&T to do the same since Verizon is the biggest wireless provider in the nation. An AT&T spokesman said they continue to explore more ways to disclose information in this area.
Shareholders in both companies mentioned that these reports are similar to those issued by giants such as Facebook and Apple.
This development comes after a federal judge ruled that the data mining by the NSA is almost unconstitutional.
The first online report by Verizon will be published early next year.
