Washington's push to erect new barriers to the entry of Chinese companies into the USA market continued on Wednesday, as the country's top telecommunications regulator announced a move to block China Mobile.
The United States has intensified a campaign in recent years targeting Chinese telecommunications companies.
Washington has barred the Chinese networking equipment company Huawei from developing the new ultra-fast 5G mobile network in the United States and has blocked USA government purchases of its services. There have been very low odds of any foreign carriers getting their foot in the door of the US communications infrastructure in the past, but T-Mobile is now a large player and Sprint is dominated by Japan's Softbank.

The largest telecommunications provider and carrier in the world, China Mobile submitted its application to the FCC in September 2011. However, regulators have long doubted the telcom's intents as being in the public interest.
"Safeguarding our communications networks is critical to our national security", Pai said in a statement. According to The Verge, the FCC and executive branch rejected China Mobile's possible mitigation agreement.
The Trump administration had directed the FCC to oppose China Mobile's application last March, citing that it would allow the company to "interconnect and have greater access to telephone lines, fiber-optic cables, cellular networks and communication satellites throughout the United States' telecommunications network". However, China Mobile only sought to provide phone services for worldwide calls made from the US. Therefore, I do not believe that approving it would be in the public interest.
China Mobile applied to offer mobile services to U.S. customers way back in 2011. The draft Order would also find that China Mobile is vulnerable to exploitation, influence, and control by the Chinese government.
