UK plans cut in Huawei's 5G network involvement to zero in 3 years

The UK government is reportedly looking to gradually eliminate Huawei’s involvement in 5G networks by 2023 due to security concerns.

According to the Daily Telegraph, which first broke the story, Prime Minister Boris Johnson always had “serious concerns” about allowing Huawei’s involvement, and they’ve been exacerbated by the pandemic.

Huawei’s Victor Zhang told the Financial Times that the reports “simply don’t make sense” and argued that the UK chose to allow Huawei because it needed the “best possible technologies, more choice, innovation and more suppliers.”
