Britain bans china’s huawei

new Delhi. China's Huawei will be completely removed from the UK's 5G network by the end of 2027. The government announced this on Tuesday after reviewing the impact of US sanctions on Huawei of Britain's National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC). Earlier, the Chinese company was allowed to work in a limited way by the UK in expanding its 5G network. The decision was made after a review of the new US sanctions imposed on Huawei in May at an NCSC meeting chaired by Prime Minister Morris Johnson. These new restrictions allow the Chinese company to acquire products based on American semiconductor technology. Following this UK ban, Huawei's accessories will be completely removed from its network. After 31 December 2020, the purchase of any new 5G kit will be completely banned. Britain's Digital, Cultural, Media and Sports Secretary Oliver Dowden said that 5G will be the changing technology for our country. But this will be possible only when we have complete confidence in the infrastructure built for it and we are confident about its safety. He said that after the US sanctions on Huawei, on the advice of our cyber experts, the government has decided to ban Huawei for our 5G network.

After January 2021, no new 5G kit will be added to the UK 5G network. At the same time, by 2027 the country's 5G network will be free from Huawei. Dowden said that by the next general election (2024), the government will make this ban a law to pave the way for the complete removal of Huawei from our 5G network. This UK ban on Huawei is being seen as a major success of the Donald Trump government of America. Expressing disappointment over the British decision, Huawei said in a statement issued in Beijing that this is a bad news for anyone holding a mobile phone in the UK. This is a disappointing decision. It is a decision to push the UK on a slow digital path, increase the digital divide and move towards expensive bills.
