FCC to accept comments on Huawei, ZTE security risks until Feb. 3

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is seeking comments from the public on its decision that Chinese telecom companies Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and ZTE Corp. pose national risks.

In a notice dated Jan. 3, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau said comments will be accepted until Feb. 3.

The FCC in November 2019 passed an order banning the use of its Universal Service Fund subsidies to buy or obtain communications network equipment from companies, such as Huawei and ZTE, who were deemed threats to national security.

The Universal Service Fund helps fund universal access to telecom services in rural, low-income and hard-to-reach areas.

Huawei has petitioned against the ruling and noted that the decision could cause reputational damage.
