The US Extends Ban on Telecom Hardware Huawei and ZTE by One Year
American telcos may also not use equipment from the Chinese manufacturers Huawei and ZTE in the coming year. In any case, the ban will remain in force until May 2021.
The United States has long accused Huawei of espionage for the Chinese government, something for which no evidence has ever been provided.
Huawei and the Chinese government have always denied these allegations. Despite this, the US introduced a ban on the use of network equipment from Chinese companies a year ago.
Earlier, several American companies received an exception to the ban, which allowed them to do business with Huawei.
Among other things, for the roll-out of 5G technology.
This exception expires officially next Friday. The exception is expected to be extended for that time, an anonymous source reports to Reuters.
