In May, the FCC rejected China Mobile’s utility to turn into a telecom supplier in the US, citing “substantial and serious” regulation enforcement and safety dangers. In their letter, the Senators reportedly warn that China Telecom and China Unicom might pose comparable threats and will reroute communications touring on their networks by means of China. When the FCC denied China Mobile’s utility, it stated it was reviewing current approvals. In a press release supplied to Reuters, FCC spokesperson stated Chairman Ajit Pai “has made it clear that the Commission is reviewing other Chinese communications companies such as China Telecom and China Unicom.”
While the FCC could already be investigating the two telecoms, the letter exhibits that Congress is prepared to apply stress to Chinese know-how corporations, at the same time as the Trump administration lifts some restrictions on corporations like Huawei.
