The two companies are among the world's largest providers of telecommunications gear and are seeking greater access to the U.S. market. Rogers said they could provide a wealth of opportunities to Chinese intelligence agencies.

Senior executives of both Chinese firms are testifying Thursday before the panel. They deny being a security threat and say the allegations are unsubstantiated.

The committee is expected to finalize its investigation in early October.
