Are you buying phone or internet service from AT&T? If so, I suggest reconsidering your choice.

AT&T provided NSA eavesdroppers with full access to its customers’ phone calls, and shunted its customers’ internet traffic to data-mining equipment installed in a secret room in its San Francisco switching center, according to a former AT&T worker cooperating in the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s lawsuit against the company.

Mark Klein, a retired AT&T communications technician, submitted an affidavit in support of the EFF’s lawsuit this week. That class action lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco last January, alleges that AT&T violated federal and state laws by surreptitiously allowing the government to monitor phone and internet communications of AT&T customers without warrants.

Know me something I don’t tell.

Why would anyone think that this is not going on at all other phone and Internet companies? Either directly if they are big enough to have their own equipment, or through the transmission capability at the larger companies that the smaller ones contract for.
