A country that bans entitely a provider even like Google does not deserve any chance.

A company that that bans a manufacturer from its services must expect a rival service to be developed.

Sounds great, the more options, the better for the end consumer. I'm no fan of Huawei, but I admit and respect that they managed to kick the negative notion of a "Chinese product" out of their brand. As for the other brands... I'm not too fond of them, but they'll probably get a recognition boost.

Yhis ^ smells a bit like hypocrisy to me. A country bans a whole industry sector must expect reciprocal actions, and I hope USA isn't done yet.

IF, the tit for tat escalate and we do end up with two disparate eco systems, then for me, so be it. I'd much rather a smaller but free industry than a big but risky, communist influenced industry.

Funny that communist China sprouts propaganda about America decoupling from global institutions when it bans global companies from operating (freely or at all), and its companies are actively setting up communist approved alternative.

It'll be effectively under censorship by the Chinese government

Those Chinese companies would never allow anything on the platform that goes against the Chinese government

Because if they do, they will be punished by the Chinese government back home

I predict we're only a few years away from a bifurcation of the internet, where China creates their own internet, separate from the existing one. Then they'll stop their people from using the internet from the rest of the world.

No, that's them using the same internet, and trying to wall it off. I'm talking about a bifurcation of the internet, where they are essentially two separate Internets - one that is Chinese, and controlled entirely by them. They don't control the current Internet, they just do their best to ensure their people don't do what they don't want them to do.
