The US government has banned the sale and import of communications equipment from Chinese smartphone makers and network suppliers Huawei and ZTE. They posed an unacceptable risk to national security.

This was announced by the FCC on Friday. “As a result of our order, we cannot approve any new Huawei or ZTE devices,” FCC Commissioner Brandon Carr wrote on Twitter. It is also possible to cancel existing permissions. “This is the first time in FCC history” that new devices have been banned for national security reasons.
