In this news, we discuss the FCC asks Justice Department to weigh in on China Unicom U.S. operations.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has asked the Justice Department and other U.S. agencies to clarify whether China Unicom’s continued U.S. operations posed national security risks, according to a letter released Friday.
In April, the FCC issued show cause orders warning it could shut down the US operations of three state-controlled Chinese telecommunications companies: China Telecom, China Unicom and Pacific Networks Corp and its subsidiary ComNet (USA). China Unicom has nearly two decades of authorization to provide international telecommunications services to and from the United States.
