UK  decided to prohibit Huawei from 5G networks

Philip Jansen also warned of “outages” and possible security risks if the sector was told to curtail all business with the Chinese technology company during the building of the 5G network upgrade.

 

So to be clear from the end of this year telecoms operators must not buy any 5G equipment from Huawei. And once the telecom security bill is passed it will be illegal for them to do so.

 

It is necessary and indeed prudent to commit to a timetable for the removal of Huawei equipment from our 5g network by 2027. Let me be clear, this requirement will be set out in law by the telecom security bill.

 

UK's expected U-turn on Huawei fails to satisfy Tory rebels

 

Ed Brewster, a spokesperson for Huawei UK, said: 'This disappointing decision is bad news for anyone in the UK with a mobile phone. It threatens to move Britain into the digital slow lane, push up bills and deepen the digital divide.'

 

'Instead of 'levelling up' the government is levelling down and we urge them to reconsider. We remain confident that the new US restrictions would not have affected the resilience or security of the products we supply to the UK.'

 

'Regrettably our future in the UK has become politicized, this is about US trade policy and not security. Over the past 20 years, Huawei has focused on building a better connected UK. As a responsible business, we will continue to support our customers as we have always done.'

 

'We will conduct a detailed review of what today’s announcement means for our business here and will work with the UK government to explain how we can continue to contribute to a better connected Britain.'

 

The further analyse the details and implications of this decision before taking a view of potential costs and impacts.”

Our decisions in January had already set back that rollout by a year and cost up to a billion pounds.

Today's decision to ban the procurement of new Huawei 5G equipment from the end of this year will delay rollout by a further year and will add up to half a billion pounds to costs.

Requiring operators in addition to remove Huawei equipment from their 5G networks by 2027 will add hundreds of millions of pounds further to the cost and further delay rollout.

This means accumulative delay to 5G rollout of two to three years and costs of up to 2 billion pounds.

It was noticeable that the UK government did not wish to take ownership of the decision to ease out Huawei.

 

So far the head of France’s cybersecurity authority has ruled out a total ban on Huawei, and Germany’s Deutsche Telekom, Huawei’s largest customer in Europe, has argued firmly against any blanket ban on individual vendors.
