FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks, a Democrat, was confirmed by the Senate in January to that position joining fellow lefty Jessica Rosenworcel to make up the 2-3 minority on the regulatory agency. In an interview with CNET, Starks says that not only should the U.S. continue to prevent Huawei networking equipment from being used to build out 5G networks, the gear should also be removed from older 3G and 4G pipelines.

Starks says that older networks using Huawei equipment are just as risky to the U.S. as 5G networks containing Huawei gear would be. In fact, the commissioner states the U.S. needs to make sure that there are no security risks in current networks. The first thing, he says, is to find out how many carriers have risky gear in their networks. One association made up of rural carriers told the commissioner that it is smaller, rural wireless providers that still have Huawei equipment in their networks. According to this association, a quarter of its 50 members have such risky gear in use today.

After that is accomplished, the next step is to determine what the depth of the problem is, and how far it extends on problem networks. This would require finding out whether the particular network uses Huawei software and code or equipment that should be prohibited.  He adds, "Does it go to the core of the network, like routers and servers? Or does it extend to antennas and radios that go to the edge part of the network? We need to figure out which equipment has issues."
