The United States is in a race against China to develop and deploy 5G networks. Potentially impacting the U.S.’s ability to compete is a recent federal district court decision that ordered Qualcomm, this country’s leading semi-conductor company to provide its customers, including rival Chinese telecommunications companies, with critical 5G intellectual property. The judge’s ruling against Qualcomm was based on faulty reasoning and was made despite a lack of concrete evidence of anti-competitive behavior. Fortunately, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals appears likely to overturn the lower court’s decision. I have written more about this here.
