Re: FUD

Perhaps you missed what Carlos Slim is doing down in Mexico with profitability? This is about US companies purchasing foreign manufactured equipment, not foreign companies entering the US to compete with domestic service providers.

I'm referring to the overall market as a whole, including service providers and equipment suppliers. Verizon and AT&T both have much higher revenue with far less subscribers than American Movil.

Regardless, who do you think it is that supplies those companies with gear? Qualcomm, Ericcson, Nortel, Alcatel-Lucent, etc. The government is trying to protect the $100B+ annual revenue of those companies. They don't want ZTE and Huewai entering the market and undercutting the domestic suppliers, which is exactly what would happen.

So the US government is protecting revenue streams for other countries' companies? I think you're reading too much into this.
