Executives from AT&T Inc, Twitter Inc, Alphabet Inc's Google, Inc, Apple Inc and Charter Communications Inc are scheduled to testify about consumer data privacy before a U.S. Senate panel on Sept. 26, according to a congressional statement.

"This hearing will provide leading technology companies and internet service providers an opportunity to explain their approaches to privacy, how they plan to address new requirements from the European Union and California, and what Congress can do to promote clear privacy expectations without hurting innovation," said Republican U.S. Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Thune.
