UK bans Huawei from 5G networks

The UK government announced Tuesday a ban on Huawei 5G wireless network equipment. The ban requires all existing Huawei 5G tech to be purged entirely from the country's network by the end of 2027.

UK Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden said: "Following US sanctions against Huawei and updated technical advice from our cyber experts, the government has decided it is necessary to ban Huawei from our 5G networks.".

Huawei said in a statement: "Regrettably our future in the UK has become politicised, this is about US trade policy and not security."
