Maybe three ways...

India: The government’s new proposal to force internet giants to remove content it views as harmful is drawing comparisons to China’s strict censorship system. Platforms affected could include Facebook, Google, TikTok, and more. The result?  “A splintering internet, where a onetime unified information superhighway has become increasingly restricted in certain areas,” writes the NYT.

      Yesterday, New Zealand blocked Chinese telecom firm Huawei from building out a 5G network in the country—after Australia did the same in August. New Zealand intelligence officials informed a major NZ carrier that using Huawei's 5G equipment would "raise significant national security risks."
      About the risks: 
      Some countries worry that Huawei will use its powerful technology to spy on or disrupt communications on behalf of the Chinese government. 
      The threat is so real that the U.S. government has reportedly started an "extraordinary" effort to encourage allies to block Huawei (the largest telecom equipment maker in the world) from supplying 5G infrastructure. 
      As the U.S.-China conflict rages on, we are seeing a divide between countries that are comfortable with using next-gen Chinese tech...and ones that aren't. On Monday, Papua New Guinea said it's sticking to its deal with Huawei.

      This companies stock has been appreciating in the last couple of months because of the FCC's approval of it's C Band wavelength spectrum to be used in the upcoming 5G wireless rollout.
      Can anyone explain to me briefly why C Band is so special? Just curious as to exactly how a satellite company could offer anything of value to terrestrial cell tower companies.

      Your Tax Dollars at Work: A Federal Plan to Take Over the 5G Network

      It could go down as the most interesting PowerPoint ever—a leaked slideshowoutlining preliminary plans by the Trump administration to have the governmentbuild the countryÂ’s 5G networks.
      Should it happen (which, officials stressed, it probably won’t), the move would be a major shakeup, considering wireless infrastructure has long been the domain of private companies like AT&T and Verizon.
      So why is the government considering taking over the role? 
      China
      Perhaps the U.S.’ No. 1 geopolitical foe, China is sprinting ahead in the race to build next-gen wireless networks, while also seeking to meddle in the U.S.’ system. So in order to protect against Chinese cyber threats, the U.S. could take it upon itself to create a bulwark: a comprehensive, standardized network. Think Eisenhower’s interstate highway system, but with less concrete. 
      So what is 5G? Featuring lighting quick data delivery, 5G (or fifth-gen wireless networks) is the key that opens the door to the newest wave of tech innovation: IoT, self-driving cars, and virtual reality, to a name a few. Dive in here.
