OPHEIM, Montana — Kevin Nelson was recently in the middle of his 3,800-acre farm in northeast Montana, where the landscape stretches out like an ocean, when his tractor broke. He tried to find a cellular signal strong enough to send a photo of the broken part to a repair shop 65 miles away, but failed. “It’s really frustrating,” Nelson, 47, said about the poor reception. “We keep being told it’s going to improve, it’s going to improve.” Now it’s not likely to improve anytime soon. Plans to upgrade the wireless service near Nelson’s farm halted abruptly this month when President Donald Trump issued an executive order that banned the purchase of equipment from companies posing a national security threat. That includes gear from Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, a major supplier of equipment to rural wireless companies. The chief executive of the wireless provider in Nelson’s area said that without access to … [Read more...] about Huawei ban threatens wireless service in rural US

Western fears of Chinese telcoms giant Huawei infiltrating their technological infrastructure are rooted in fears of China’s rise. Three of the “Five Eyes Network” of English-speaking states that share intelligence–the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand–have blocked their local firms from using Huawei tech in building their 5G networks. The U.K. and Canada are under pressure to follow suit. But a lot of these fears are misplaced, and cutting Huawei out of the picture could backfire in the long run. Not only would it limit Western access to new, state-of-the-art technology, it could create a world split along technological lines. Depending on who you talk to, you’ll get vastly differing portrayals of Huawei. Many of the concerns are based on the idea that the company is in bed with the Chinese government and point to founder, Ren Zhengfei’s background as a People’s Liberation Army engineer. Yet Ren only owns about 1.4% of the … [Read more...] about Why Western fears of Huawei could backfire in the long run
