As Winston Churchill pointed out: "Americans always do the right thing -- after they've tried everything else"
Becoming reliant on manufacturing in a repressive Communist country that is our #1 geopolitical rival, one that refuses to enforce IP rights (have you seen Xiaomi’s new “Mimojis”???) and rips off everything American countries do with impunity, was a bad idea from the start. Shifting away from Chinese dependence was inevitable and is overdue.
We already know how this will turn out. $700m will be handed to carriers, they will have 10 year dead line to remove all Huawei/ZTE. During that time they wil add a $1.15 fee to everyone's monthly bill and call it Federal upgrade tax. After 10 years they still will not have upgraded all the equipment and ask for an extension and more money from the government and increase the Federal upgrade tax monthly fee to $2.25. after about 20 years finally all the equipment will be updated and over paid by 1000% all by the federal government and Federal upgrade tax fee users pay. The fee will stay and then they will be back asking the federal government for more money to change out all the India equipment.
