Re: Don't buy US kit
Define bigger risk. The Chinese have proven they have absolutely no issues wholesale stealing your technology then selling it in their own market with no regard for copyright/trademark/patent law. The US, while they may want to find something to blackmail you with, won't be destroying your business by stealing your technology.
If I'm concerned with hiding something illegal I'm doing, sure, Huawei is great. If I'm concerned with having a profitable business, give me Cisco and a backdoor from the NSA all day long. If I'm a government concerned about state secrets I wouldn't touch either one.
