The U.S lawmakers re-affirm the ban on Chinese Huawei Technologies as well as all other telecom network equipment as the country finds it to be a threat to its security. To offer an alternate solution after the removal of such networks, the U.S. lawmakers will be funding a program for $3.2 billion so that low-income Americans can come forward and participate in the emergency broadband set up by the government.
Earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission issued a bill declaring equipment from companies of China Huawei Technologies Co and ZTE Corp as complete threats for the company. The bill has also persuaded many U.S. companies to terminate all the agreements with these companies so it could be replaced with better and safe technologies.
To help reciprocate the situation, the bill has also introduced an FCC program, particularly for emergency broadband, so that Americans with less income could easily afford broadband service.
