Two core factors in these assessments are that 5G providers that have legal and other imperatives to cooperate covertly and deeply with their home governments pose a greater security risk than providers without these obligations and imperatives—and that governments do not want to be beholden to the governments of states with which they do not share values or interests.
So, what will happen in the future? Who knows? It's a chaotic time anyway!
''''If, as some experts predict, Huawei and ZTE win the race to build and operate much of the world’s 5G infrastructure... American big tech will live in a Chinese walled garden of technology and be subject to the curators’ choices about what it can and can’t do''''
Isn''''t it exactly the things US has been doing, and tries to keep it this way since WWII? I guess it has never thought one day it may experience what it is like the way it treats other countries.
The worst-case scenario for big US tech is that Apple, Facebook and Google in effect become apps inside a Chinese global information ecosystem. Chinese state policies and BAT, Huawei and ZTE would decide which of their products and services can be hosted on Chinese digital infrastructure and services. That looks like a very bad business plan。
Or maybe they’re stuck in a mindset that governments around the world already know is dead: the idea that globalisation is a process that ‘de-states’ the world, rendering state boundaries and powers less relevant. According to this long-gone vision of globalisation, companies and consumers could be ‘country agnostic’ about where services and products came from because global supply chains and capital would move and reconfigure in ways that had no little or connection with individual nations.
So why do we have to worry about which country has the 5g initiative? Are these really so important in this era of globalization?
Honey, of course these are important!
National interest is Neoconservatism that promotes global conflict and the vision of American global hegemonism. Using false excuses (for example, "China's technology fence garden") and then intimidating American technology companies to regard China as their necessary enemies is the plan that the US government is plotting now!
You definitely have a point. In the stock market there are bulls and bears. Only by carefully observing the two sides can you win a favorable decision.
Easy for you to say. What about China's government law about all tech companies have to obey the gov's wish? What about all the surveillance tech china is exporting and u sing against people in its own country? China paranoia is based on something. Look at lebron james and nba.
I'm sure that you have been brainwashed by the public opinion dominated by the government. You idiot, the NBA first offended China, which I'm quite sure!
Companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, AT&T et al have been "strongly encouraged" to "cooperate" with US intelligence service and have (because they didnt want to face the unspecified "consequences" of refusing). Does that mean every other country should ban these companies from their internet services? Of course not. This weaponizing of "national security" concerns when what''''s really motivating the action is anti-competitive monkey-wrenching is hurting every consumer in the world and it''''s an embarrassment for the US inasmuch as everyone know it has nothing to do with security.
I can't accept that other people dominate technology because we can't dominate everything.Sounds weird, right? This is what we are doing now! To be honest, sometimes I feel ashamed of my American identity!
Interestingly enough, Marine, I''''ve found that some of the people who share opinions most similar to my own when it comes to disgust and shame for what our country''''s government did in Iraq and Afghanistan have actually been American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
On the contrary, those who call for patriotism and overthrow everything are excited. What contribution do they make? Apart from keyboard and saliva, I can't think of their use!

scare tactics doesn''''t work anymore.
Americans are happy with 4G and being spied upon by their own government.
5G is already available and rolling out in areas across the country.
@Truth AMERICA IS FAKE 5G! YOU CAN KEEP DREAMING!Try living in China or Russia!
@Sharone, I''''ve been living in China for over 2 years now. I retired here with my Chinese wife. It''''s much more affordable here. I can do anything here that I could do in America and I don''''t have to listen to stupid Christians talk about their faith or worry about strangers carrying loaded guns on the streets.
We used to be the helm of everything how could we fall behind so much and let the Chinese call the shot of 5G? Didn''''t we always said they copy/steal all techs from us, if this time we don''''t have it where did they copy/steal that from?
and after 2years of this not one person or country has shown the world the security issues they have citing as the problem.. were waiting
When I was growing up I was taught that "we don''''t cheat". But that''''s exactly what we''''re doing to Huawei: cheating. It''''s reprehensible, un-America and it makes me ashamed as an American. We can win a technology competition without cheating if we spend our resources on STEM and technology development rather than squandering them on endless wars.
They stole all the tech they have you moron，THE APPLE PHONE YOU ARE USE NOW IS ALREADY HAD 5G FIVE YEARS AGO! THE U.S.A. GOVERNMENT JUST DON''''T LET APPLE TELL YOU!
well，I have no need for 5G and I am not going to pay for it!!!
The US is afraid of competition.......
Unfortunately it is not just afraid but becoming incapable of it.
Well,take it easy. U.S has no 5G. Nobody takes down what you have not.
@kassandra - First of all, adding "moron" to your comment only demeans you by identifying you as someone who feel that they must add an insult to butress your position. Secondly, China obviously did not ''''steal all the tech they have''''. The Chinese are investing as much or more than the US in hi tech R&D and their compaines & individuals are being awarded more new hi tech patents annually than their US counterparts. You can''''t stael what hasn''''t been invested yet and you can''''t secure that many new patents if all you''''re doing is copying other people''''s ideas. You''''re the victim of an intensive anti-China propaganda campaign.
