Not one byte! German telecom giant plans to rout foreign spooks
"Of course the NSA could still break in if they wanted to, but the mass encryption of emails would make it harder and more expensive for them to do so," Sandro Gaycken, a professor of cyber security at Berlin's Free University, said when the idea was first proposed.

Germany’s largest telecom provider, Deutsche Telekom, is looking to introduce a “national routing” service which would keep German internet traffic out of the hands of foreign spies.

The former state-owned communications giant outlined the plans at a secret meeting in the Economy Ministry, business weekly Wirtschaftswoche reported.

Currently, email data is exchanged between users worldwide via international Internet exchange points; physical structures through which Internet service providers (ISPs) exchange Internet traffic between their networks.

The company hopes to hammer out an agreement with other national Internet providers which would guarantee that “while being transported from the sender to the receiver in Germany… no single byte leaves Germany,” Thomas Kremer, a board member of Telekom’s data privacy, legal affairs and compliance, told the magazine.

** Of course, like NSA's ECHELON, it still doesn't prevent BND, the BundesNachrichtenDienst (German CIA/NSA counterpart) or their other related govt agencies from spying on their own citizens, then passing on the info to InterPol and other foreign intel services.

Also, it's my understanding that both Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone (UK co, but w/large presence in Germany and rest of Europe, along w/rest of the world) are as corporatist as any American telco giants. Seeing as how they're the top 2 majority carriers in Germany, not sure how all this would work out, in reality, vs. what's being advertised.

But, hey: who knows?

The phrase "an Honest TeleCom company" perhaps will cease to become an oxymoron in Germany, at least...some day. Stay tuned...

not sure

if i can believe that. the german intelligence agency helped the nsa, so the german government knew about this stuff. one third of the telecom belongs to the german government. i think its a big pr-move. nobody in germany likes the telecom...and recently they made a few statements that made everybody angry; like limitting your internet speed as soon as you have downloaded x gigabytes.

thanks. that, was the feeling I had too: PR BS

as I've prefaced, they're as corporatist there as here. and, indeed as you stated, did help the NSA. Plus the entire 'feigned indignance' about 'just discovering' that NSA spied on everyone and anyone is all BS nonsense: as ECHELON participants, they ALL knew about it, but now it just provides them political cover before their each respective nation's sheeple populace.

yeah brother, they're 'throttling' my internet speeds here too. I had Qwest, one of the only companies whose CEO tried to deny govt access to their customer's info. Of course, he was summarily persecuted and prosecuted by the US govt terrorists: http://www.dailypaul.com/288364/former-quest-ceo-says-compan...

then, it got gobbled up by some 3rd tier nobody telco, but obviously still with enough clout to make your life miserable if they wanted to; now they're posting occasional warnings about download usage, though they're saying 'we're not going to charge you per usage, but because you happen to be among the 10% of net users gobbling up all bandwidth, please limit your usage' type of notices. actually the first one I've ever received, since I've been online since the 1990's.

anyhoo, this is why I keep telling those around me who want to leave US, I keep reminding them: fix it here, 'cause you ain't got many places to go, unless you want to live 100% off the grid with zero electronic signature, whatsoever.

thanks for your assessment germanRPfan .)

PS. I feel so sad that, that series of 'discussions' on the Jordan Maxwell thread got so out of hand; it hurt to watch it here.o/

the german

intelligence agency provided access and data for the nsa, isn't that nice?

I didn't know about the Qwest CEO. This is getting ridiculous.

I think thats your internet/cable provider:

About the Jordan Maxwell thread....I am ashamed that I got involved in this thread the way I did. But I am glad to see that I am not the only one who made that mistake. :)
I love Jordan Maxwell, I think watched all his videos. It's sad that this topic can not be discussed in a constructive way.
Btw how old are you as a brother?

I wish

Alex would learn to let his guests speak. :(
