Only in MAGA-land | “As governments around the world race to build out 5G — superfast next-generation wireless technology — the United States has been campaigning to ban the use of telecom equipment made by the world’s largest supplier, China-based Huawei. U.S. officials cite concerns that the Chinese government could use Huawei equipment for spying.

“This week, to the dismay of the White House, the United Kingdom granted permission to Huawei to provide some components for parts of its 5G network. And that decision could lead Germany, Canada and other countries to follow suit.

“Given the promise of 5G — which could one day connect all of our cars, factory equipment, toys, heart-rate monitors and an endless array of other devices to the cloud — leaders around the world are concerned about security. That said, the infrastructure to support 5G has a long way to go and the true “internet of things” is probably years off.” – Marketplace.org e-news
