THE Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rejected a bid made by China Mobile to offer telecommunications services in the US, citing concerns over national security, reports London's Financial Times.

The FCC's five members voted to deny China Mobile's application, which would have allowed the company to connect calls between the US and other countries.



FCC chairman Ajit Pa said last month he opposed the proposal and called on the other FCC members to vote against it. The FCC has said the Chinese government indirectly controls the company, China Mobile USA.



If granted a section 214 licence, China Mobile would have received greater access to US telecommunications infrastructure such as phone lines and cellular networks.
