Hong Kong media reports: The US government spends $1.9 billion to allow rural telecom operators to dismantle Huawei and ZTE equipment.
Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post reported on the 28th that the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a document to the country’s rural telecom operators on the 27th, instructing the latter to apply for a US$1.9 billion “remove and replace” program subsidy.
Using the phrase “national security is threatened” by the US, he is trying to destroy Chinese firms like Huawei. The US has repeatedly accused Chinese companies’ products of security risks, but they have never produced convincing evidence.
According to reports, the program will officially begin accepting applications on October 29. In an online meeting on the 27th, the FCC announced that the country’s application window for rural telecom operators will be extended until January 14, 2022.
According to the report, when speaking of the plan, Montis, director of the FCC’s Cable Competition Bureau, still claimed: “With Huawei and ZTE (by removing their equipment and services) to mitigate existing risks, this plan still has a long way to go.”
Are Chinese firms that the US sees as a “national security threat” really a “national threat” or a power struggle between the US and China?
