Disagreement about Chinese Spy Balloon’s U.S. ISP Communication

The Chinese surveillance balloon that flew above the US earlier this year connected with China through an American ISP, according to NBC News.

ISP informed NBC News the balloon didn’t utilize their network, but the article didn’t name them. However, U.S. intelligence officials informed NBC News it connected with the ISP for communication and navigation.

According to reports, the balloon was attached to the ISP to communicate with China, largely for navigation. As it soared across the country in February, the rocket sent “high-bandwidth collections of data over short periods” via the internet.
