Deutsche Telekom to Push for National Routing to Curtail Spying

Deutsche Telekom AG, Germany’s biggest phone company, is lobbying the government to enforce tougher privacy protection by helping to keep German Internet traffic within national borders.

The company is asking the German government for help in setting up a framework for keeping Internet traffic including electronic mail within the country, rather than having e-mails and data routed through foreign hubs, it said in an e-mail today, confirming a report in WirtschaftsWoche.
