Statement on FCC's Deny on China Mobile International’s Application to Obtain International 214 License

11 May, 2019

China Mobile International (CMI) has been devoted to providing high-quality international telecommunication services to customers globally. CMI complies with and adheres to the local laws and regulations in every country it operates. In the spirit of openness and free trade, CMI applied to obtain International 214 License from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), aiming to support telecommunication needs to customers in both countries, enhancing connections between the two markets. 

After 7 years and 8 months of application, FCC now denies CMI's bid to operate in the U.S. without apparent reasons and basis. It is out of market economy principles and contradicts the trend of economic globalization. CMI hopes that the U.S. government will stop putting "unreasonable pressure" on Chinese companies and provide a fair, non-discriminatory investment environment for Chinese companies in the United States.
