5G rollout threatened if Govt clamps down on Huawei tech

February 11, 2019 / Manny Pham

A nationwide rollout of 5G could be delayed if a full-scale ban on Huawei network equipment is enforced by the government next month. The warning comes as Huawei faces a backlash and bans by global governments. It was charged last month by the US Justice Department for bank fraud, obstruction of justice and theft of technology. Huawei denies all allegations. “Less than five per cent of our network uses Huawei and it’s not in our core network,” says an O2 spokesperson. “We take the security and protection of our networks seriously and work closely with the NCSC, GSMA and other government bodies to constantly review our security architecture.”
