The UK is moving to drop Huawei as a vendor for the country's 5 G cellphone network in major blow to Communist China over poor coronavirus Prime Minister Boris Johnson, now recovering from COVID-19, gave the Chinese company a role in 5 G infrastructure this year , squashing opposition last month

The UK’s decision to allow Huawei gear in its 5G networks may be short-lived. Officials talking to the Financial Times (via The Verge) say the UK government is planning to gradually phase out use of Huawei equipment in 5G networks, eliminating it entirely in 2023. According to the Daily Telegraph, which first broke the story, Prime Minister Boris Johnson always had “serious concerns” about allowing Huawei’s involvement, and they’ve been exacerbated by the pandemic.

Huawei’s Victor Zhang told the FT that the reports “simply don’t make sense” and argued that the UK chose to allow Huawei because it needed the “best possible technologies, more choice, innovation and more suppliers.”

  Watch Huawei's P40 unveiling in just 12 minutes Earlier today Huawei showed off its new P40 family of phones, which come packed with enough new tech that they're still interesting without a path to market in the US or Google's apps. The P40 Pro+ packs in a ridiculous 10x optical zoom capability with its super periscope telephoto lens. There's also a new smart speaker with some impressive audio capabilities to take advantage of the Celia voice assistant that will launch in an update later this year, as well as fresh updates for its smartwatches.

Also, senior British official reportedly says UK is unlikely to reconsider "firm" decision to allow Huawei access to non-sensitive parts of its 5 G network .

Such a move would please the current US government, which has insisted that Huawei could serve as a conduit for Chinese surveillance. However, it could also prove to be a serious headache for both UK telecoms and the government. BT, for instance, estimated the cost of honoring the existing 35 percent cap on Huawei would cost about £500 million. It might cost more to drop Huawei entirely, and there are concerns the effort involved could stall the UK’s plans to bring fiber internet access to every home. Whether or not that’s ultimately the case, Huawei clearly can’t expect to play a large role in key Western 5G rollouts.
