Rogers, TekSavvy reveal government data requests

In the wake of blockbuster revelations by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Canada’s telecommunications companies are starting to pull back the curtains on their relationships with government authorities around the sharing of customer information.

Rogers Communications Inc. on Thursday released what it called its 2013 Transparency Report, a brief four-page document detailing the number and types of requests the company has received, and the legal framework governing its response.

The Rogers report comes on the heels of similar disclosure from independent communications provider TekSavvy Solutions Inc. Other providers are expected to follow suit later this year.
