Sigh. They're preventing poor carriers from expanding their local networks for political reasons. I hope they are at least making the funding bigger to compensate, otherwise rural areas are going to be hurt badly.
("The USF is an $8.5bn nationwide fund that subsidizes telcos that provide service in rural and poor areas, schools, and libraries." From The Register's coverage of the news)
Ironically, rural areas are more likely to vote for right wing parties according to recent elections worldwide.
They will be forced to buy from other manufacturers increasing the cost for public
The equipment should t have been subsidized in the first place.
Lots of people here are attacking the US, but if I had to choose between the US and China, that is currently putting millions of its own citizens in concentration camps, censoring the entire internet from its population, and spies on everyone through a network of millions of cameras it installed, I know which one I would choose.
GIF, 23 Nov 2019Thanks God that everything from US is allowed in China! Oh wait....Exactly. China block alot more companies and services than America.
And they both spy.
So if I as getting spied on I rather it be google than some chinese company
I been using devices with google services for years I had no issues.
[deleted post]yes those companies should stop spying. they should have known only america and it's companies are allowed to spy worldwide. we can't give that chance to every damn country.

[deleted post]The ban wasn't about intellectual property theft. It was about possible backdoors in Huawei tech that the Chinese government could use to spy US interests. Problem is, there isn't a single shred of evidence that supports US claims.
[deleted post]It is the same from the US side, do not worry mate... Usually, people call it collaboration, but some people get "greedy" and want only one sided business...

Geez guys. Are you really that dumb or are you instead part of the 50 cent gang of the CCP?
Huawei is based on China, the same China that dares to copycat everything they see that sells (and even stuff that doesnt sells) without any problem, and here you are, saying stupid stuff like "US steals intellectual property too". You guys are fucking morons. in the US, you can get sued until your are broke for doing stuff like that. Seriously, get your brain checked before posting like idiots.
about the privacy breach stuff, there are several exploits and open doors left on Huawei's code. If that was an error or something intentional from them js unknown, but the doors are there, so it is not safe to use that equipment. Google it if you like and please do not post that old link from 2018 from a German guy who didnt even check the code.
So, the US government, with seemingly no proof (that has been made public), are actually insisting US taxpayers spend an additional £2 billion dollars to replace an infrastructure they've already paid for? Why, if it is at the cost of US citizens, are they not allowed to be informed of what this security threat is?
A presidency and cabinet hellbent on keeping their secrets... Shameful
