FCC revokes China Telecom’s US authorisiation over national security concerns

China Telecom must withdraw its communications services in the US within 60 days after the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) revoked its authorisation to operate.

An ‘order of revocation and termination’ was issued to China Telecom Americas after the FCC ruled that the division was a subsidiary of the Chinese government and that this was unacceptable on national security grounds.
