He may have indeed had ATT ID. But the colo security people wanted a government ID. "Company" ID is relatively meaningless and trivially forged, particularly for small values of "company". If I were to show up in a truck with "Jay's Telco" on the side, produce "Jay's Telco" ID, and refuse to show a driver's license or government ID I would expect datacenter security to be a bit suspicious. Why should AT&T be treated any differently?I am shocked that the ATT employee did not have an ATT ID. In our facilities, we require all visiting telcos to produce company identification, and between telcove/level 3, Verizon, MCI, and several others, we have never had an issue. I'd be a bit more suspicious that he didn't have ATT ID.
