Reference News: FCC Opposes China Mobile Offering Services in the U.S.

Reference News, a well-known branch of Xinhua, recently reported that China Mobile is currently seeking to provide telephone services in the United States and some other countries. The company explained that they were not seeking opportunities in the wireless services area. However, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai expressed his concern about security risks and that he was against allowing China Mobile to provide telecommunication services in the States. He revealed that the FCC will have a vote in May. It is widely expected that the five members of the FCC will support the position clearly stated by Chairman Pai. Ajit Pai also explained in an official announcement that the risks lie in the national security aspects and law enforcement aspects. China Mobile did not respond to the request for comment.
