AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon Blasted For Data Privacy Policies

A U.S. senator Wyden is giving the four telecommunications companies until Sept. 4 to outline how they plan to better protect customer data privacy.

Wyden said that current rules that are in place that surround data retention are not enough, and that the telecom companies have been able to skirt them. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires carriers to keep records of toll calls for 18 months, for instance – but Wyden alleges that firms retain records “for much longer.”
