September 14, 2014


Deutsche Telekom said it had found no indication that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and Britains GCHQ had obtained access to its computer network, but said it was investigating the matter following a report in Sundays Der Spiegel magazine. We are looking into every indication of possible manipulations but have not yet found any hint of that in our investigations so far, a Telekom spokesman said in a statement on Sunday. Der Spiegel said it had seen information suggesting the NSA and GCHQ had gained access to the networks of Deutsche Telekom and smaller German provider Netcologne.
