Comcast and Law Enforcement

Secrecy News has gotten hold of a Comcast handbook for law enforcement that, among other things, details the telecommunications giant’s data-retention policies. Makes for some very interesting reading, if you’re a Comcast customer. One area that caught my attention was the retention of all phone numbers dialed – local and long distance – for two years, when using their regular or VOIP services. I’m pretty sure this is required by law here in the U.S., but it makes me wonder if those hypersensitive to data-mining and privacy issues might be better served with VOIP providers based overseas, like BlueFace. Food for thought, anyway, if these sorts of things concern you.
