The Next Web reports how Britain has announced it’s banning Huawei from the country’s 5G network, mere months after agreeing to keep the firm as a supplier.
“Telecom company will have to strip all Huawei gear from their networks by 2027, and will be barred from buying any more of its 5G tech from the start of next year.”
Afterward, Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden said the move would cost up to $ 2.5bn and delay the UK‘s 5G rollout by two-to-three years.”
“This has not been an easy decision, but it is the right one for the UK telecoms networks, for our national security and our economy, both now and indeed in the long run,” he said. “By the time of the next election, we will have implemented in law, an irreversible path for the complete removal of Huawei equipment from our 5G networks.”
