Telecom NewsBytes – 22-01-28 – Unanimous FCC Vote Bans China telecom carriers from US

China Unicom said in a statement that it “has a good record of complying with relevant laws and regulations and providing telecommunication services and solutions as a reliable partner of its customers in the past two decades.” But, all four commissioners voted unanimously to revoke the license for the American subsidiary of China Unicom. They asserted that the company could access or reroute American communications as well as engage in spycraft.

The commission also accused China Unicom, one of China’s largest mobile service providers, of misleading the agency and Congress. All of the companies have been delisted by the NYSE.
