Britain to allow Huawei 'restricted access' to 5G network

World | REUTERS 25 Apr 2019

Britain will allow Huawei Technologies a restricted role in building parts of its 5G network, seeking a middle way in a bitter dispute between the United States and China over the next generation of communications technology.

Huawei is under intense scrutiny after Washington told allies not to use its technology, for fear it could be a vehicle for Chinese spying.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported Britain's National Security Council agreed to allow Huawei access to non-core parts of 5G mobile infrastructure like antennas, but would block the company from all core parts of the 5G network. Huawei welcomed reports that the UK is "moving towards allowing" the company to help build its 5G networks.
