This article reports that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) could enter investigations into Deutsche Telekom (DT) over admissions it spied on phone calls to identify news leaks. The FCC could initiate its own action to see if DT's pretexting extended to T-Mobile USA. According to a spokesman for the FCC, the agency has not begun an investigation of T-Mobile USA but it has authority to begin one if there is evidence that the DT scandal spread to the U.S.
