U.S. mulling development of nationalised 5G network to restrict Chinese spying

The Trump administration is considering the development of a nationalised 5G network which will keep citizens' data secure from the Chinese government, but experts warn that such a network would be 'expensive and duplicative'.

The U.S. is taking a number of steps to prevent the Chinese from taking control over the wireless network infrastructure, such as stopping Chinese acquisition of major firms and mulling about setting up a nationalised 5G network.

According to an administration official who spoke to Reuters, the Trump administration is discussing a move to set up a nationalised 5G network which will be more resilient against hackers and which will not be controlled by Chinese network infrastructure firms like Huawei and ZTE.
