China Unicom is the latest Chinese telecoms behemoth to be barred from entering the US due to “significant” national security and espionage concerns.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it had voted unanimously to remove the company’s authorization to operate in the United States.
Within 60 days, the company must cease offering telecommunications services in the United States. The announcement comes after China Telecom’s license to operate in the United States was terminated in October.
