The Federal Communications Commission is moving forward with a plan intended to stop carriers from using Chinese hardware.
The news: Bloomberg reports that the FCC has voted unanimously to bar telcos from using US federal subsidies to buy technology deemed a national security risk.
Striking out at China: The move is aimed at Chinese firms Huawei and ZTE. Plus, on Monday, the US banned ZTE from buying technology from American firms.
More of the same: In recent months, America has made a series of moves to slow China’s tech growth, such as blocking Broadcom’s bid to acquire Qualcomm.
But: The anticipated trade war that all this foreshadows could hurt US companies.
What next: The FCC rules will go to a second vote before they become binding.
