Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
China Mobile blocked from offering phone service in US
The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday voted unanimously, 5-0 across party lines
to reject China Mobile International USA Inc.'s long-ago filed application.
"Granting China Mobile's application would not be in the public interest," said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. "There is a significant risk that the Chinese government would use China Mobile to conduct activities that would seriously jeopardize the national security, law enforcement, and economic interests of the United States."
Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat, criticized the agency for not doing enough to protect U.S. networks, adding that Thursday's vote was just "performative security" on an application that had been on "permanent pause" and sitting around for more than eight years.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
