Tencent Science and Technology News, according to foreign media reports, the United States Federal Communicators Association (hereinafter referred to as

On March 22, US President Donald Trump signed a presidential memorandum.

Two days later (March 24th), it was reported that FCC is considering a new regulation to prevent mobile operators from using electronic products of Chinese manufacturers such as HUAWEI and ZTE. If the operator violates the regulations, it will not get the government subsidy.

March 27 Chairman of the FCC Akett

Yesterday, 5 members of FCC voted for the proposal and approved the implementation of the new rule with a 5-0 vote. It is expected that the new regulation is expected to be formally introduced this year. At that time, the US mobile operators will be prohibited from buying any equipment or service that threatens the national security of the United States by using the FCC 8 billion 500 million US General Service Fund (USF).

Although the pay statement is only indirectly referred to HUAWEI and ZTE, but FCC senior officials have confirmed that ZTE and HUAWEI, the two companies have been explicitly involved in the proposal.

Analysts say that although HUAWEI has less than 1% share in the US wireless network hardware device market, the US wants to prevent HUAWEI from gaining more share, especially when 5G services are about to be commercialized.

Huawei and ZTE have been unfairly treated in the U.S . market this year . Huawei is about to compete with the US mobile operator in January this year

Last month, Best Buy, the largest electronics retailer in the US, announced that it had stopped buying the latest mobile phones from HUAWEI and stopped selling other products of HUAWEI.

On Monday, the US Commerce Department announced that ZTE would violate the 7 year export ban imposed by the U.S. government on the settlement agreement reached last year. This means that in the next 7 years, American companies will not be able to provide products to ZTE.

Some analysts say that the above protectionist measures of the US government will affect the sales volume of Chinese enterprises in the US market to some extent, such as HUAWEI and ZTE. But at the same time, it will also affect the revenue of American local companies, such as high Qualcomm.

In addition, Bloomberg published an article yesterday that the measures of the US government may only accelerate China's dependence on American Technology Corp and become the most powerful competitor in the US. In the end, it will only benefit HUAWEI, ZTE and other Chinese technology companies.
