Report suggests that Germany is now creating its own Internet to secure communications from spying by foreign intelligence services.
State-backed Deutsche Telekom is currently urging other German communications firms to “cooperate to shield local Internet traffic from foreign intelligence services” like the National Security Agency (NSA), Reuters reported Friday.
Germany chancellor is very angry from this report, however on Wednesday, President Barack Obama completely denied that any such activity had occurred in a phone call with Merkel.
Deutsche Telekom has initiated a very bold thing, as this proposal is looking very difficult in a practical way, experts cited by Reuters said, even though “more than 90 percent of Germany’s Internet traffic already stays within its borders,” according to the news service.
Meanwhile, a local internet implementation means Germans will not be able to execute sites like Google and Facebook, which is hosted outside Germany.
