Satellite communications, not cable. The political debate was about
business espionage, not personal communications, the 2001 EP report is
somehow flaky and flawed but still interesting.

Also consider the EP demands at item 29f.

For cable based communications let me quote a footnote from
http://www.iccwbo.org/Advocacy-Codes-and-Rules/Document-centre/2012/mlat/

"The main MLAT providing a right to direct interception across borders
is the Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters between the
Member States of the European Union (2000) (“EU MLAC”), Art. 20;
(Interception of Telecommunications without the technical assistance of
Another Member State)."
