Hi! User from the ex-yu here.
Many people (including myself), when talking about Internet privacy, usually talk about how the big tech like Google, Facebook, Verizon, even Apple, are companies that have no regards towards user privacy and are actively violating it. And that’s true, yes. But all of those are US-based.
Now, the Balkans isn’t exactly popular when it comes to big tech companies, but what about telecoms? m:tel (my personal Internet service provider), BH Telecom, mts, Vip, Telenor… I’m almost certainly positive that some (or most) of these guys snoop around. But how do I know if there’s little to no coverage? It’s all about that Verizon the Balkans doesn’t have. Or Google that everyone uses. And ESPECIALLY that Faecesbook that my parents have.
Anyway, point of this thread is to talk about telecoms of any kinds, but I’m mostly curious about ex-yu, and if there are any resources for me to study about this phenomenon. Thanks in advance, and my apologies if you don’t have enough input.
