The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is being sued by Huawei for banning carriers from using money from the Universal Service Fund (USF) in order to buy equipment from Huawei and ZTE. Huawei officials have said that the ban goes beyond FCC's authority and violates the constitution. Small carriers buy equipment from Huawei and ZTE because they are cheap and dependable compared to Nokia or Ericsson.
