After belatedly deciding to follow Verizons lead last year, ATT has published its first transparency report, detailing the number of customer data requests it received from local, state, and federal law enforcement in 2013. It tallies 301,816 total requests for phone records and subscriber information, split between subpoenas, court orders, and search warrants. However, the company concedes that it cant yet legally go into specifics about the number of national security requests it received from the NSA, though it promises to include new information as we are allowed by government policy changes going forward. ATT breaks down its law enforcement requests into multiple categories according to the nature of the request and the kind of data being provided.
