    So a suspicious person has cable. They dial 1-855-CABLECO for service.  Now, every customer who dials that same CABLECO number is two degrees away and fair game for the NSA.  Not to mention anyone who calls for take-out from the same restaurant, reserves tickets from the same travel agency or airline, hires the same sewer-rooter, etc.

    It casts a wide net that brings very very much innocent hay into the stack.
