On Thursday, the Trump administration quietly signed legislation barring certain telecom carriers from using U.S. subsidies to purchase network equipment from China’s Huawei Technologies. While the nation focuses on the response to the Corona virus, President Trump signed this legislation that also requires the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to assist rural telecom providers with the costs involved in removing prohibited equipment from Huawei and replacing the equipment.

As you are aware, the US has taken measures to limit Huawei’s ability to threaten national security – some measures currently in place include barring military personnel from using Huawei manufactured smart phones and a campaign by the US to encourage foreign allies from using Huawei equipment in their upcoming 5G networks.
