Federal agents are currently frustrated because a number of private companies keep getting in their way when the FBI is snooping – and are noticed to be holding back introduction of more sweeping surveillance of the Internet.
According to media reports, the FBI is seeking Homeland Security’s help to discover cases which they claim were “negatively impacted” by private sector. Some of the private companies are said to delay investigations inadvertently or fail to immediately bend over to surveillance requests by the Feds. For instance, Cricket Communications has irritated federal authorities because the company allegedly hindered an investigation due to technical problems on its network. They got in the way of a wiretap and location tracking.
In response, Cricket claimed that if requested disclosure was lawfully permitted, it would hand over data to the police, but otherwise it denies the request. In the meantime, the anxiety of the police about the efficiency of its information collection refers to its wider plan to appeal for major Internet companies to set back doors solely for the government surveillance.
As for the Homeland Security, they acknowledged that other private companies had also caused some problems for information gathering. The list of the mentioned companies includes T-Mobile, Comcast and MetroPCS. For instance, in Honolulu, Homeland Security complained that there are delays of up to 4 months from Cricket and T-mobile. The only company the Feds aren’t worrying about is Microsoft. The latter has been getting on the FBI’s good side by going as far as to finance “fusion centres”, i.e. hubs for the US surveillance.

|That's incorrect. Comcast is the first to start snitching.|
|They are all going to either allie themselves to the witch hunters or get bent over and butt pirated by the man,they all want to make money and if homeland security want to pull the gracie card and do illegal wire tapping without a warrant or court order then most will do it or be on the naughty list.Amongst the witch hunters is virgins Richard Branson and other cable companies who want to make yet more money by stopping torrents and doing their own on demand netflix type channels to rob us of yet more money in fees and in the USA microsoft is going down the same road and since most of the USA use Windows spying on the general population is already done without hinderance,the next objective in the Cyber manifesto is to do the same to the rest of the world through collaboration set up from 2001 with international partners.|
