The UK government recently took a decision of terminating Huawei-built telecom gear by 2027. They took the first step by banning cellular operators from installing Huawei 5G equipment after September 2021, says the Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport.
“Today I am setting out a clear path for the complete removal of high-risk vendors from our 5G networks,” said Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden in a statement. “This will be done through new and unprecedented powers to identify and ban telecom equipment which poses a threat to our national security.”
Earlier in the month of November, Huawei asked the UK to backtrack on their decision of banning the use of new Huawei 5G gear and accelerate the removal of equipment already in place. VP Victor Zhang saying the decision was “motivated by US perceptions of Huawei and not those of the UK.” The company added that the restrictions will negatively affect Britain by increasing costs and “deepen[ing] the digital divide.”
The UK government revealed its “5G Supply Chain Diversification Strategy” designed to bring new vendors into the 5G telecom market. That includes the establishment of a £250 million ($332 million) National Telecoms Lab among other measures. “We are also publishing a new strategy to make sure we are never again dependent on a handful of telecoms vendors for the smooth and secure running of our networks,” Dowden said.
