The Federal Communications Commission has designated Huawei Technologies Co. and DTE Corp. as national security threats. "The FCC's Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau formally designated two companies -- Huawei Technologies Company (Huawei) and ZTE Corporation (ZTE), as well as their parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries -- as covered companies for purposes of the agency's November 2019 ban on the use of universal service support to purchase equipment or services from companies posing a national security threat," an official release from the Federal Communications Commission said.

As a result of today's action, it said, money from the FCC's $8.3 billion a year Universal Service Fund may no longer be used to purchase, obtain, maintain, improve, modify, or otherwise support any equipment or services produced or provided by these suppliers.
