The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced yesterday (December 10) that it has rejected Huawei’s request to reconsider its decision to “list the company as a national security threat to the US communications network”.
In June, the FCC included China’s Huawei and ZTE on its so-called “threat list” which prohibits US firms from purchasing equipment from listed companies. Both Huawei and ZTE challenged this decision to no avail. Last month, the FCC also rejected Chinese telecommunication company ZTE’s request, determining that it “posed a national security threat to the US communications network.”
