British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is preparing to grant telecommunications giant Huawei access to the UK’s future 5G telecoms network. Senior government and security services sources said the UK is moving towards a decision that will see Huawei allowed access to the non-contentious parts of the network, which will open a rift with the United States as it has banned the company over fears that it is too close to Chinese intelligence agencies. The decision on Huawei is expected before Christmas.
The UK government apparently observed that some of Huawei’s technology isn’t available in the West, so Britain’s next-generation wireless infrastructure could be left behind if it doesn’t do business with the Chinese company.
In August, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei expressed confidence that the UK wouldn’t “say no” to his company’s 5G equipment, and praised Johnson as “very decisive.”
Huawei, which also operates in Latin America and the Caribbean is an industry leader in ICT and blazes a path the world over. The company has been at the forefront of industry leading technologies driving commerce in the region. Two hundred and twenty eight global fortune 500 companies choose Huawei as their digital transformation partner.
