Tobias Plate, a spokesman for the German Interior Ministry, said Berlin has decided not to renew the contract for Verizon to provide Internet service to several government departments, the report states. “There are indications that Verizon is legally required to provide certain things to the NSA, and that’s one of the reasons the cooperation with Verizon won’t continue,” Plate said. Verizon’s current contract will expire in 2015.
