Strategic independence of key assets was a thing for both the US and UK until very recently.

until ~ 2005 the uk PSTN was considered ok to transmit stuff up to secret classification, that all changed when BT was ordered to let others install their own kit in BT’s exchanges.

Look now how the US has kicked Huawei out of the 5G access market, you can’t even buy a Huawei phone in the us and they have Huawei execs arrested in foreign countries.

As for favouring the mother nation, look no further than France for wanting to protect her own industries at all costs.
