FCC’s action will do nothing to protect American telecoms and only widen the Digital Divide: Huawei

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said it plans to vote against Huawei and announced it as national security, which is another tactic to ban the Chinese tech giant from all of the international markets.

In response to the FCC’s announcement, Huawei has sent the following statement to AndroidAuthority, Expressing the company’s disappointment.

“In 30 years of business, Huawei has never had a major security-related incident in the 170 countries we operate. Huawei is trusted by over two billion consumers, partners with many of the Fortune 500 businesses, and supplies more than 500 network operators around the world.”

“Banning specific vendors based on country origin will do nothing to protect America’s telecommunications networks. Today’s proposal, released by the FCC Chairman, only impacts the broadband providers in the most unserved or underserved rural areas of the United States. Such action will further widen the digital divide; slowing the pace of economic development without further securing the Nation’s telecommunications networks.”

“The FCC is aware of alternative measures that could solve both issues – continuing to enhance connectivity in those areas while actually improving the security of US networks – but Chairman Pai is choosing to also ignore what is considered best practices around the globe. Huawei remains open to engage with the US government and policymakers to find a productive solution to safeguard the US telecommunications system.”

According to the previous information, Pai first proposed in March 2018 to ban companies that posed a national security risk but did not name any specific.

This latest decision by FCC completely reflects the US government’s will to add to ban Huawei from serving the US companies.

Back in May, the US Commerce Department imposed a trade ban on Huawei, alleging of being a national security threat and the company is under control of Chinese law. These allegations are repeatedly denied by the Chinese tech giant.
