senate Bill S. 1625

Should the Feds Pay to Remove Chinese Equipment Used for Spying from U.S. 5G Networks?

Argument in favor

As 5G networks are built and deployed across the country, it’s important to ensure that they’re secure. Given the Chinese government’s mandate that Chinese companies help facilitate spying, it’s important to keep Chinese telecom companies’ components out of the U.S. 5G network.

Recently it was uncovered that some server boards by SuperMicro manufactured in China had a mysterious chip that was studied and found to implement secret monitoring of all network traffic processed on-board at the hardware level. These boards are quality high performance boards which are low priced and widely purchased for large server farms, corporate and government networks. Google, Amazon and several others issued statements that their SuperMicro boards were OK. Then it all went very silent. The point is that Chinese have incorporated technology to spy in products that their manufacturers sell (tech passed to them to support their manufacturing for others). I see the same risk for 5G networks. Hardware based espionage is much more difficult to discover than software based espionage.

👍🏻SECURE 5G NETWORKS WITH USA PRODUCTS & EQUIPMENT👍🏻 As 5G networks are built and deployed across the country, it’s important to ensure that they’re secure. Given the Chinese government’s mandate that Chinese companies help facilitate spying, it’s important to keep Chinese telecom companies’ components out of the U.S. 5G network. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. 6.29.19.....

Argument opposed

Huawei — one of the two Chinese companies specifically identified in this bill — is the global leader in 5G technology. If the U.S. wants to win the race to deploy a national 5G network, it’ll need to continue using Huawei technology, especially in rural areas where cost is a concern.

The feds should make the Chinese pay to remove it.

We need to secure the privacy of the 5G network but the bill needs to be passed on to China.

UPON PRESENTATION OF SOLID EVIDENCE, I would support this bill. However, to date, does such evidence exist? While I concede it is possible, no decision to prevent use of or TO PURCHASE such equipment should be made without due diligence. As Reagan said “trust but verify” and this needs to be continuous verification not just one-time.

    Yes, get Chinese equipment out of our communication system. They steal our intellectual property. I don’t trust them.

    China is a self-declared enemy of the United States. Nothing we do should support the Chinese regime.

    You get what you pay for. When you get low bids, you generally have to redo the project. Low bid is not always the answer. 5 G will be used all through America, so if you want control, stay American, write the proposal so it stays in America. We have Tech Companies here in America that do as well or better.

    Yes. I support this proposal. We had multiple military laptops destroyed back in 2014 because they had Chinese hardware designed for collecting data and sending it back to China. It’s a larger issue than most anyone knows.

    If you sell equipment that is built to basically be a spy device than you shouldn’t be allowed to do it in America. Law enforcement in America making sure they’re fighting terrorism is different than some Chinese company selling hacked equipment to people. LIKE MY TAKE? GIVE ME A FOLLOW

    Stop China from trying to win the race. They are gathering intel from us so we must protect our 5G networks.

    Too late for some as the severe damage has been done and it appears there is no recourse or remedy for it. Who’s the ones who continue to target, harass and damage our health via space based satellite weapons? I’d say take their tech equipment away also.

    We should never be paying for anything used by the Chinese to spy on us! We should be competing with the Chinese for 5G, and everything else!

    I believe it is a requirement of the government to protect our country. That is an act of war on China’s part.

    If they (OUR spyboyz) find it, they need to kill (remove) it. Period. Unless we just want to let them have everything we've got. Trust no one.

    Seems like a no brainer! Unless you want to treat it like our borders and just let everything and everyone access to our country.
