Britain excludes Huawei from the country's 5G network

On Tuesday, Britain announced it would exclude Huawei from the new high-speed telephone network, saying it could not ensure Huawei's equipment security, so the country decided to turn to other suppliers of components. The USA threatened to terminate an information exchange agreement with United Kingdom due to concerns that Huawei equipment could allow the Chinese government to infiltrate UK networks.


According to the UK Minister for Culture, Oliver dowden, this decision will delay the launch of the 5G network in the country and will certainly cost millions of pounds, but it was something that had to be done.

UK carriers will have to remove Huawei equipment already in place 5G network of the country by 2027, while they should stop supplying its products company by the end of this year.

However, the government chose not to order companies to remove equipment manufactured by Huawei for a long time. systems, like 4G, as such a decision would create chaos in the telecommunications sector.

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson was also pressured by the Conservative Party. Ten Conservative lawmakers have sent a letter to the prime minister demanding that he remove Huawei from the "critical national infrastructure of the United Kingdom".

In an effort to balance the situation, Johnson agreed in January to give Huawei a limited role in Britain's 5G network, excluding the company from key elements of the system and limiting its participation to 35% of the total project.

However, his move provoked reactions from the United States, which said it would stop cooperating with Britain on security if it did not remove Huawei. In the midst of ongoing pressure to completely remove Huawei from networks In May, the United States imposed new sanctions that would prevent companies around the world from using US-made machines or software to produce chips for the Chinese company.

Huawei expressed frustration and said the decision threatens to lead "Britain to a digital lag, raise bills and widen the digital divide".
