Britain Bans 5G Equipment Huawei from September 2021
From September next year, the British government will ban telecom providers from integrating Huawei equipment into the 5G infrastructure.
By 2027, all equipment from the Chinese telecom giant must be gone.
“We are taking bold steps to contrivance one of the strictest telecom security regimes in the world,” Digital Affairs Minister Oliver Dowden announced the deadline for the parliamentary debate on new telecom legislation to ban Huawei.
“An important part of that is fighting high-risk vendors, and I have established an unambiguous schedule for the whole removal of Huawei equipment from our 5G networks by 2027 at the latest,” Dowden reported.
The British government had already announced in July that it would exclude Huawei from the network for security reasons.
