Huawei 5G kit must be removed from UK by 2027
“The UK’s mobile providers are being banned from buying new Huawei 5G equipment after 31 December, and they must also remove all the Chinese firm’s 5G kit from their networks by 2027.”
“Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden told the House of Commons of the decision.”
“It follows sanctions imposed by Washington, which claims the firm poses a national security threat – something Huawei denies.”
“Mr. Dowden said the move would delay the country’s 5G rollout by a year.”
“He added that the cumulative cost of this, and earlier restrictions announced against Huawei earlier in the year, would be up to £2bn.” –BBC News reports.
