Government asks mobile service providers to upgrade for BlackBerry news
20 September 2010

Hard put to make Canadian telecom gear supplier Research In Motion to facilitate government monitoring of its encrypted BlackBerry messaging service in compliance with the country's security requirements, the government has now asked telecom service providers in the country to upgrade their networks in order to intercept BlackBerry messages.

The department of telecommunications (DoT) has asked mobile phone operators to upgrade their networks by 22 September.

Reports quoting DoT officials said the department has also asked service providers to submit a compliance report to the effect that networks have been technically upgraded to intercept all BlackBerry services by legal enforcement agencies for lawful interception by 22 September.
