Sama, sama: China & US?

In China on 28/01/2020 at 4:08 am

The FT recently reported that the CEOS of 18 small British telecoms companies met at a London bank two months ago to discuss investment, strategy and mergers in the telco sector.

At the beginning of the meeting, to get everyone into a participatory mood, they were asked two questions.

They were asked if they thought the Chinese could eavesdrop through “backdoors” in Huawei equipment. Every single hand went up.

They were then asked, if they thought the US could eavesdrop through key Cisco equipment.

All the hands went straight back up without hesitation

S’pore telcos use a lot of Cisco stuff (internet related) and are starting to use Huawel because its cheap and excellent. Nokia’s and Ericsson’s stuff are expensive and juz OK.
