The U.S. Federal Communications Commission ejected Pacific Networks Corp. and ComNet (USA) LLC from the U.S. market, continuing a series of bans of Chinese telecommunications companies over security concerns.

Wednesday’s 4-0 vote follows the agency’s January decision to bar China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. Last year the agency barred China Telecom (Americas) Corp., and earlier it refused to let China Mobile Ltd. enter the U.S. market.
