Global Times: FCC Revoked China Telecom’s Authorization to Operate in the U.S.

Global Times recently reported that, the United States once again unreasonably suppressed Chinese companies in the U.S. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) just announced that it would withdraw China Telecom’s authorization to provide domestic interstate and international communications services in the United States. The FCC voted to revoke China Telecom’s authorization in the name of national security considerations. China Telecom must stop service within 60 days. In 2019, the FCC revoked China Mobile’s authorization and it is currently working on the same action against two other Chinese state-owned companies:  China Unicom and Pacific Networks. At the end of 2020, the New York Stock Exchange announced the initiation of delisting procedures for China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom. While all these things are happening, three major U.S. retailers, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe’s, have also removed products from China’s Hikvision and Dahua Technology on the grounds of so-called “human rights issues.”
