Huawei’s 5G plans across the globe were challenged by the U.S., fearful that the Chinese government will use the technology in future acts of espionage. Facebook and Google faced a lacerating backlash from consumers and governments suspicious of how it manages the data of its users – leading to anti-trust actions and massive regulatory fines.
