The report is staggering in its detail, but generally speaking, Vodaphone provides data to governments in three ways: "mandatory compliance with lawful demands," "emergency and non-routine assistance" and "protecting our customers and networks."
Well, vodafone is just basically trying to gain the favor of the customers by stating the obvious.
Its not like any well informed person dosent know this already, and it might the less informed believe this is a way of being transparent with their customers.
The worst part is that while people in their 40s might consider this to be invasion of privacy, 10 year olds will grow up with this and accept it as natural order. In the end, if an idea is not destroyed by human opposition and it can survive to the next generation, it will stick.
