Huawei planning lawsuit against FCC equipment ban for USF recipients

Friday 29 November 2019 | 13:31 CET | News
Huawei is expected to fight the decision the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) taken last week, barring Universal Service Fund (USF) recipients from using equipment and services from Huawei and ZTE, sources close to the matter said. The Chinese company plans to file its suit in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The ban is for companies that pose a national security threat and specifically designates the Chinese companies. USF fund recipients, often small rural carriers, will have to remove and replace any equipment they have from the designated companies.
