T-Mobile says they did NOT participate in spy program, Comcast less clear

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Just to recap, from what we know currently:

- Verizon land-line: "We have been in full compliance with the law and we are committed to our customers' privacy."

- AT&T land-line: "Our customers expect, deserve and receive nothing less than our fullest commitment to their privacy. We also have an obligation to assist law enforcement and other government agencies responsible for protecting the public welfare, whether it be an individual or the security interests of the entire nation."

- BellSouth land-line: "We have not provided any information we would need a subpoena for."

GOOD GUYS(supposedly)
- Qwest
- Verizon Wireless: "Verizon Wireless is not involved in this situation."
- T-Mobile: "T-Mobile is not a participant in any NSA program for warrant-less surveillance and acquisition of call records. T-Mobile has not provided any such access to communications or customer records."

- Comcast: "It is not company policy to provide the federal government access to customer records or the ability to monitor customer communications in the absence of valid legal process."

That is a non-answer from Comcast. And what's worse, it's actually the same answer we're getting from AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, which we already know from the USA Today article are voluntarily invading their customers' privacy. So where does Comcast really stand? Time to ask them to get a clear answer rather than legal mumbo-jumbo.

Cingular Wireless
RCN cable phone
And I'm sure many more wireless and landline telcos I'm forgetting.
