AT&T to issue “transparency report,” denies widespread sharing of location data

Amidst the ongoing controversy over phone carriers’ role in a surveillance scandal, AT&T says it will publish data about government requests for customer information.

AT&T has joined Verizon Communications in publishing a report that details how many surveillance requests it gets from law enforcement. The company announced Friday that it will begin publishing a semiannual report offering details of requests it has received from law enforcement. This comes one day after Verizon announced a similar plan. AT&T and Verizon have each come under pressure from shareholders to disclose to their customers how many requests they get a year.
